The library has a large collection of materials related to this year’s CIS theme, Islam. All of the libraries printed materials can be found on the shelves behind the Research Help desk. This includes books and multimedia resources such as videos.
In addition to the information physically available in the library, Todd Wiebe has also created an online LibGuide with access to many digital resources. Here, you can find general overviews of Islam in addition to more focused areas of research, such as Muslims in America, Islam and Women, and Islam, Christianity and Judaism. If you plan on attending one of the keynote addresses, the LibGuide can direct you towards more information on both Reza Aslan and Asma Barlas.
