The Institute of Islamic Studies of Canada's McGill University is digitizing books by Iranian Islamic scholars in a project to provide an easy access to the major sources of information about Islamic sciences, the McGill's Institute of Islamic Studies has announced.
The books are kept at the library of the Tehran branch of the McGill's Institute of Islamic Studies, which is implementing the project with the help of the University of Tehran.
So far, over 100 book titles have been digitized in this project, which gives an easy access to some of the most important manuscripts and reference materials of different Islamic Sciences, many of which are accompanied by introductions or translations into foreign languages.
The Tehran branch of the McGill's Institute of Islamic Studies was established at the Ferdowsi Auditorium of the Faculty of Literature at the University of Tehran in 1969. Since then, several academic projects have jointly been carried out by the universities.
