Islamic Law Research: Major Print and Electronic Resources

Boston College Libraries

The titles in this list that are available at Boston College (many through the law library and some through O'Neill) appear in red and hyperlink to the record in the BC catalog.  For books that are not hyperlinked, consider making an interlibrary loan request.  The easiest route is to search for the title in Worldcat and click the "Request Interlibrary Loan" link.  For any items that are available at other BC Libraries, including O'Neill Library, members of the BC Law community should locate the book in the BC Libraries catalog, sign in with BC credentials via the catalog record, and request the book (it can be delivered to the law library). Alternatively, visit the other BC library to check out the item with your BC ID.
