The Index Islamicus database indexes literature on Islam, the Middle East and the Muslim world. It is produced by an editorial team working at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, established to transmit knowledge about Islamic and Middle East studies, which have traditionally been part of the curriculum of SOAS. Records included in the database cover almost 100 years of publications on the world of Islam.
Material cited in the Index Islamicus includes not only work written about the Middle East, but also about the other main Muslim areas of Asia and Africa, plus Muslim minorities elsewhere. Over 3,000 journals are monitored for inclusion in the database, together with conference proceedings, monographs, multi-authored works and book reviews. Journals and books are indexed down to the article and chapter level.
Subject coverage: Islam, Muslim, Middle East, Arab, Asia, Africa, History, Political science, Arts, Humanities
The IMB, long available in print and CD-ROM, is the most comprehensive index for Medieval Studies. The online database comprises over 300,000 records. All subjects relating to the Middle Ages are included, within the date range 300–1500 AD. Geographical areas covered are Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. There is free text searching within the records and searching by authors, titles, publication sources, years of publication, ISBN/ISSN, languages, subjects, place names, persons, families, texts, repositories, and centuries treated. A browse function within each field displays the available terms.
The online-only Bibliographie de Civilisation Médiévale (BCM) is a bibliography of books that can be searched together with or separately from the IMB. There is also an International Directory of Medievalists available alongside IMB. In addition the Brepolis Medieval Encyclopedias provide online access to 1) Europa Sacra, a directory based on two earlier works, 2) a major German-language print encyclopedia, Lexikon des Mittelalters (or LexMA), and 3) an online-only supplement, International Encyclopaedia for the Middle Ages. Citations in the IMB and BCM link to articles in the encyclopedias, which in turn link to citations in the IMB and BCM.
Iter bibliography addresses many aspects of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, such as archaeology, art, history, literature, music, philosophy, religion, and science, covering the years 400–1700. It provides citations for books, journals, and essays.
