Bibliography of Arabic Books Online

A Bibliography of All Printed Arabic Language Books before 1960

Edited by William J. Kopycki

The Bibliography of Arabic Books Online (BABO) aims to become a comprehensive bibliographic database containing information about virtually all books published in Arabic before 1960. BABO contains over 80,000 bibliographical records from the National Library in Egypt, the British Library and the Library of Congress. BABO will include Name Authority Files (NAFs) which list all the spellings variants of authors’ names found in the database. This will be an invaluable finding aid for end-users of BABO, and a practical reference for librarians cataloguing Arabic titles. For creating the Name Authority File, the following resources have been used: - Nosseir (Arabic Books Published in Egypt before 1956) - Egyptian national bibliography - al-Nashra al-misriyya lil-matbu’at - Carl Brockelmann - Geschichte der Arabischen Litteratur The spellings found in The Encyclopaedia of Islam have also been added.
Features and Benefits - Over 60,000 bibliographical records - Includes authority files for Arabic names - Searchable in English, transliterated Arabic, and in Arabic script - Full MARC-21 and Library Card records are included

This bibliography offers a new and indispensable tool for both researchers and practitioners in the field of Islamic law. It supplements the bibliographies published by Joseph Schacht (1964) and John Makdisi (1987) and includes some 1,600 Western-language publications which have appeared between 1980 and 1993. It contains a general and a regional section. With regard to the latter, the main focus is on the Middle East (including Afghanistan and North Africa), although publications in South and Southeast Asia have also been included. In order to facilitate its use, an authors' index and a subject index have been added.

This online publication is the English translation of Brockelmann's famous Geschichte der Arabischen Litteratur (GAL). Brockelmann's work offers bio-bibliographic information about works written in Arabic and their authors, with an emphasis on the classical period. It is divided in chronologically organized sections, which are subdivided by literary genre. Individual entries typically consist of a biographical section and a list of the author’s works in manuscript and print, with references to secondary literature. Unlike the German original, the English translation spells out all the authors' names, which makes the translation much easier to consult. Minor errors in converted dates have also been corrected.

Brockelmann's History of the Arabic Written Tradition Online includes links to the German version online, allowing users to switch between the two languages.

The “Brockelmann” is an indispensable research tool for anyone working on the Islamic world in general and the Middle East in particular.

The Index Islamicus consists of the following publications: Index Islamicus Online, the full-text searchable electronic database. Index Islamicus, the annual journal (print edition in 1 yearbook, previously 4 single issues). Index Islamicus Yearbooks , the annual yearbook (print edition available individually or as set). Supplements to the Index Islamicus, specialized bibliographies in print.

The Index Islamicus is the international classified bibliography of publications in European languages on all aspects of Islam and the Muslim world from 1906 onwards until present day. 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. The Index Islamicus is edited by Gregor Schwarb, Heather Bleaney, Pablo García Suárez and Susan Sinclair.

Presently, Index Islamicus contains over 575,000 records, covering all the main Muslim areas of Asia and Africa, as well as Muslims living elsewhere, and their history, beliefs, societies, cultures, languages and literatures. It includes material published by Western scholars in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences, specialist area- and subject-based areas, and by Muslims writing in European languages. Publications recorded are in the form of articles, books and book chapters. All essays and papers contained in multi-author volumes are recorded, classified and indexed separately.

Periodicals
Over 3,000 journals are surveyed for inclusion in the database, together with conference proceedings, monographs and multi-authored works. Journals and books are indexed down to the article and chapter level. Newspapers, news magazines, and government or official “grey” literature are excluded.

Requests for inclusion of a publication need to be made via this link.

Classification
The well-known Index Islamicus classification scheme, uniquely and carefully geared to the field of Islamic Studies, allows one to quickly find all literature headed under a particular, broader subject area (e.g., Education, Philosophy, Shīʿism, Sudan, Palestine, Israel, as well as their subcategories).

Extensive indexes
Those who prefer more specific queries, have in the print edition at their disposal two elaborate indexes, facilitating quick and effective searches: the subject index guides the user to material on specialised subjects not covered by the classification scheme (e.g. Al-Azhar, mawlids, railways), and also to items relevant to one subject but classified under another. The name index lists not only authors, but also editors, translators, reviewers and personal subjects. So researchers interested in, for instance, Ibn Khaldūn or Muhammad Iqbal or the Ayatollah Khomeini can quickly find publications both by and about them. The online edition offers a full text and advanced search opportunities.

The Editorial Offices are located in the Library, SOAS, University of London, http://www.soas.ac.uk and the Instituto de Lenguas y Culturas del Mediterráneo y Oriente Próximo (CCHS, CSIC) in Madrid, http://www.ilc.csic.es.
