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:

  • Daiber Collection Database is a collection of Arabic manuscripts in the Daiber Collection Institute of Oriental Culture at the University of Tokyo. “This collection is the corpus of manuscripts mainly focused on Arabic, collected by Dr. Hans Daiber, a professor of Islamic studies in Germany, over many years. Institute of Oriental Culture, University of Tokyo purchased the collection, its first part in 1986-1987 and its second part in 1994.”
  • Oriental Manuscripts of the University of Gotha is a “database [that] registers Oriental manuscripts of the Research Library of Gotha.
