Islamic Studies Subject Guide

Hi friends:

I’ve recently updated both the Islamic Studies and Middle East subject guides with new information and resources. The Islamic Studies guide now includes General sourcebooks and introductions source list for quick consultation.

Also, we have recently acquired Oxford Bibliographies Online Islamic Studies which will soon be available via McGill’s catalogue.

Happy end of term!
