Field Guide to Digital Islamic Law Resources Roundup

The Field Guide to Digital Islamic Law, in the form of a Google document, is a collection of resource links and annotations to SHARIAsource and other Harvard resources, global online digital resources, and a robust “Digital Islamic Law Collection.” We recently added exciting resources to this list:

  • McGill Islamic Lithographs Digital Collection includes over 750 lithographed volumes in Arabic, Persian, Ottoman Turkish and Urdu. The volumes date back to the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th. All books are accessible as full text and the collection allows users to refine their searches by either language or country of publication, the latter of which includes Algeria, Germany, Morocco, Egypt, India, Pakistan, France, Iran, and Turkey.
  • Al-Waraq is a full-text searchable database of edited texts in Arabic across genres. The website features some of the centerpieces of Arabic books and resources that have influenced the Islamic civilization. The wide range of searchable genres include medicine, geography, literature, poetry, and history.
