The Institute of Ismaili Studies has launched a redesigned website featuring a fresh new look and additional functionality that will enhance access to new and existing content.
The updated website introduces a new navigation system, Google-based search, RSS feeds, and integrated sharing with social networking sites. Users will also benefit from reading lists and short articles, video interviews with IIS authors, images of artefacts and rare manuscripts held by the IIS, as well as reading guides and additional information about the Institute’s publications.
During the past decade, The Institute of Ismaili Studies’ website has been a source for academically sound information on Muslim societies and civilisations. Available in Arabic, French, Persian and Russian, the website has been accessible to a wide audience within and beyond the Jamat.
The launch of the redesigned website represents an exciting moment for the IIS. In a statement to TheIsmaili.org, the Institute expressed the hope that the updated website will “allow users better access to all the content within the site.”
