Encompassing over 5,000 A-Z reference entries, chapters from scholarly and introductory works, primary sources, timelines, and Qur’anic materials, the Oxford Islamic Studies Online database indexes many reference sources published by Oxford University Press under the supervision of prestigious Editor in Chief John L. Esposito of Georgetown University’s Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding. This unique collection makes the people, history, and culture of the Islamic world accessible to the western scholar. Wayne State University Libraries has obtained access to this specialized database for a limited time through the Bridging Cultures: Muslim Journeys grant. Come experience the special features this database has to offer with Karen Liston, the Librarian Liaison for Near Eastern Studies at Wayne State University.

Access to this database is provided through the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys, a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities, conducted in cooperation with the American Library Association, the Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies at George Mason University, Oxford University Press, and Twin Cities Public Television. Support was provided by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional support for the arts and media components was provided by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
