Oxford holds one of the largest collections, if not the largest collection of astrolabes in the world. A large section of these astrolabes are of Islamic origin. The museum has made a wonderful online catalogue of the astrolabes, which contains a very useful database where you can list the astrolabes according to data, maker, location etc. The website also contains high resolution pictures of all the parts of the astrolabes, which is extremely useful for studying the instruments.
