We have a new Best Bets for Starting Your Research guide specifically for Islamic Studies. Click here to access the guide: http://librarybestbets.fairfield.edu/islam. The guide strikes a balance between many areas of study most recognizable by the separation of Background Sources into Religion, History, Maps, and Islamic Art. We've also highlighted important resources such as Brill’s Encyclopaedia of Islam and Encyclopedia of Islam in the United States. We hope this will be a valuable tool as you begin your research in the area of Islamic Studies.
