syri.ac : an annotated bibliography of Syriac resources online (hosted by the University of Oklahoma) has been developed from Resources for Syriac studies (previously hosted by the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection in Washington)

This expanded and searchable collection of links to full-text articles, books and manuscripts on Syriac studies is arranged by topic and theme, including new material on theologians such as Jacob of Sarug and Isaac of Antioch and the classic Bibliotheca hagiographica Orientalis (Brussels, 1910). Open-access content is presented through a variety of electronic platforms
