TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION: Oxford Islamic Studies

During the month of February, UCLA has access to Oxford Islamic Studies, a database which contains literature-related resources. You may access it from any UCLA IP address (please note that it may not work via proxy server).  Let me know if you have trouble accessing it.  And if you do give it a try, please let me know what you think.

As usual, keep in mind that with a limited budget for electronic resources, the Library cannot purchase subscriptions to everything for which we get a trial.  That said, if I know that a resource will be of use to UCLA scholars, I will place it higher on the priority list.  Also keep in mind that for very expensive resources which are purchased at theUniversity of
California level, license negotiations may take up to a year or more.  Another reason to fight hard for open access resources…
