12 « More than a library, its a community… Usman Hamid, MA11 Institute of Islamic Studies The Islamic Studies Library is more than a library, its a community and a meeting place for scholars to exchange ideas and socialize. The staff are a font of knowledge, very helpful and experts in the field. I came to Montreal from Pakistan and this library became my home away from home as I completed my MA in early Mughal history. I believe its important for immigrants to connect with their cultures of origin and the library has helped me do this. Im grateful to the donors who made it all possible. »
