Ebla Digital Archives update [Links added in AWOL]
The editors of EbDA (Ebla Digital Archives project) are pleased to announce another major update to their database, which now provides the digital edition of all texts published in the ARET (Archivi Reali di Ebla - Testi) series, as well as of selected MEE (Materiali Epigrafici di Ebla) volumes.

The new additions include:
 
ARET 16 = Catagnoti A. – Fronzaroli P. 2010, Testi di cancelleria: il re e i funzionari, ARET 16, Roma: Missione Archeologia Italiana in Siria

ARES 4 = Civil M. 2008, The Early Dynastic Practical Vocabulary A (Archaic HAR-ra A), ARESD 4, Roma: Missione Archeologia Italiana in Siria

MEE 12 = Waetzoldt H. 2001, Wirtschafts- und Verwaltungstexte aus Ebla. Archiv L. 2769 (= Materiali per il Vocabolario Sumerico 7), Roma: Università degli studi di Roma "La Sapienza"

In addition, the database features a new revised digital edition of ARET 3 (Archi A. - Biga M. G. 1982, Testi Amministrativi di Vario Contenuto, ARET 3, Roma: Missione Archeologia Italiana in Siria), and of ARET 12 (Mohammed L. – Catagnoti A. 2006, Testi amministrativi di vario contenuto, ARET 12, Roma: Missione Archeologia Italiana in Siria).

Besides transliterations of individual texts, the users will also find high definition photos of tablets published in the ARET 5 and 9 volumes. This feature, still in its beta phase, will be fully implemented in the forthcoming months.

Finally, a new interface is being tested in order to filter, cross-reference, and visually map data on user defined groups of tablet. The editors plan to have this feature ready by the end of the year, as the migration to the new software platform provided by CNR (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche) will be completed. English translations of selected Ebla tablets will also come with the new interface.

At present, EbDA not only provides the largest number of Ebla texts available on line, but also one of the most advanced search engine for cuneiform documents, thanks to the graphemic encoding of the transliterations and the support to regular expressions.

The Ebla Digital Archives project is based at, and funded by Ca' Foscari University of Venice, and is reachable at: http://virgo.unive.it/eblaonline/cgi-bin/home.cgi.

The aim of the Ebla Digital Archives [ EbDA ] database is to provide a digital edition of the entire corpus of cuneiform texts belonging to the Ebla Royal Archives. Texts are reproduced in the same sequence as in the individual volumes of the series Archivi Reali di Ebla – Testi published by the “Italian Archaeological Mission to Siria” of the Sapienza University of Rome. Compared with the hard copy publication, the digital edition provides harmonized transliterations, corrections and numerous collations made over the years by the team of epigraphers who cooperate with the Mission.
The project is presented as a work in progress. The ARET volumes currently included in the database will be gradually followed by other volumes published in the past years. Additional texts or portions of texts that have appeared in other series, in monographs or in journals will be also included in the database. Any suggestion by interested users will be highly appreciated.

    A Digital Corpus for Graeco-Arabic Studies

    A Digital Corpus for Graeco-Arabic Studies
    Between the 8th and 10th centuries CE, hundreds of Greek philosophical, medical and scientific works were translated into Arabic. These translations helped shape the development of philosophy and science in the Islamic world. Through later Latin translations, they also exerted some influence in the Latin West. 

    Most importantly, Arabic translations were crucial for preserving, transmitting and extending ancient Greek thought: many Greek texts were lost in the intervening centuries and are now only extant in Arabic translation. The Arabic translators also had access to manuscripts that were often several centuries older and potentially closer to the Greek originals than those available to editors of ancient Greek texts today. 

    The Arabic translators’ understanding of their Greek sources was informed by their historical, cultural, religious and linguistic background. Their reading of these texts offers a new perspective on the ancient world that has the potential to enhance our own understanding.

    The Digital Corpus 

    The Digital Corpus assembles a wide range Greek texts and their Arabic counterparts. It also includes a number of Arabic commentaries and important secondary sources. The texts in the corpus can be consulted individually or side by side with their translation. The majority of texts can also be downloaded for further analysis.

    Teaching the Middle East: A Resource for Educators
    http://teachmiddleeast.lib.uchicago.edu/images/teaching-the-middle-east-logotype.jpg

    Discover the great currents of continuity and change throughout Middle Eastern history…

    This resource was written by many of the best scholars in the field of Middle Eastern studies and created in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities and three University of Chicago units, the Oriental Institute, the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, and the eCUIP Digital Library Project.
    The goal of Teaching the Middle East: A Resource for Educators is to provide teachers of Middle Eastern history and culture with a rich, reliable, and easily accessible resource that draws upon sound humanities scholarship to help build student understanding of Middle Eastern history and culture. Drawing upon the unparalleled expertise of renowned scholars from the University of Chicago, the archaeological resources of a world-famous research facility and museum, and the inherent flexibility and strengths of the Internet, it is our hope that this resource will enhance teaching and learning about the Middle East in the nation’s classrooms.
    Academically rigorous, thoughtful, and stimulating, Teaching the Middle East seeks to offer new ways of seeing and understanding by crossing cultural divides and illuminating how our shared human concerns cross oceans, time, and cultures.

    EAGLE Mediawiki
    http://www.eagle-network.eu/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/egl_web_logo.png
    EAGLE aims to build a multi-lingual online collection of millions of digitised items from European museums, libraries, archives and multi-media collections, which deal with inscriptions from the Greek and Roman World. The aim of the network is to make available the vast majority of the surviving inscriptions of the Greco-Roman world, complete with the essential information about them and with a series of peer-reviewed translations in several European languages. These are notoriously unavailable for inscriptions, as photos.
    This Mediawiki is designed to give a tool to anyone interested in bridging this gap and contributing translations of inscriptions, either by providing groups of translations or providing new ones. Mediawiki is the software installed on the EAGLE website, and it uses the additional extension Wikibase to produce seamlessly for users, machine readable data.
    This space specifically is intended to be our multilingual wiki and performs these functions:
    • gathers in one place all available translations of inscriptions online;
    • allows a simplified way to directly contribute data with no
    technical infrastructure or support locally;
    • allows comparison, multiple interpretations and solutions;
    • supports multiple languages and authorships;
    • fosters the addition and simplified creation in a unified database
    of more translations of selected inscriptions;
    • easily links images already available on Wikimedia Commons (for example these ones) to translations;
    • demonstrates the usefulness for the general public of translated
    document, the challenges of an uneasy task and the opportunities offered by this content when well interlinked;
    • guarantees best possible integration with the EAGLE portal.
    Please, get started browsing the translations by subset, by identifier, or by language. Or use the search box to search for relevant references.

    Lexundria: A Digital Library of Antiquity
    http://lexundria.com/lexundria.png
    Lexundria is a digital library of classical antiquity. Although most of the texts on this site can be found elsewhere on the internet, this project aims to make them accessible in a more research-friendly format. The Lexundria editions are thus distinguished by the following features:
    1. Standard reference numbers. Most classical texts have a standard referencing scheme used by academics and other authors (analogous to the verse divisions of the Bible). These divisions are clearly marked in the texts on this site, even when the corresponding print edition does not contain them.
    2. Pin-citation functionality. You can easily look up a passage at Lexundria using its pin citation. Rather than browse through long blocks of text in order to find the passage you’re looking for, simply enter the standard citation in the Lexundria search box. Lexundria will automatically pinpoint the passage and display it.
    3. Parallel-editions mode. When Lexundria hosts more than one edition of a work, you will see a “compare” option at the bottom of the version menu. This feature allows you to compare editions side-by-side, one passage at a time. For a taste of how this works, try reading Epicurus’s Kuriai Doxai in comparison mode.
    4. A comprehensive search engine. Lexundria’s full-text search engine makes it easy to search for words and phrases. To search the entire Lexundria library, simply enter your search terms in the search box and hit submit. To limit your search to a single work, add a backslash followed by the standard abbreviation for the work. (For example, “Antonius \Cic. Phil.” will search for occurrences of “Antonius” only in Cicero’s Philippics.) To limit your search to a single edition, add another backslash followed by the Lexundria abbreviation for the edition. (Edition abbreviations can be found on Lexundria’s table of contents page for the work you’re interested in.)
    Please note that Lexundria will conduct a natural-language search by default. To conduct a Boolean search instead, add an equals sign to the beginning of your query.
    With only a few dozen texts online at the moment, this project is still in its infancy. But even a limited version is preferable to a “coming soon” page, and in that spirit this modest start is offered to the public. I hope that this resource will make consulting these important texts more convenient than ever.

    E-Sylum: An Electronic Publication of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society
    http://www.coinbooks.org/global/images/layout/esylum_masthead.gif
    On the morning of Friday, September 4, 1998, the Numismatic Bibliomania Society's Internet email list was inaugurated with the following message:
    This message is being sent to members and friends of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society (NBS)
    In a Press Release going out soon to the numismatic press, we describe the purpose of the mailing list as follows: 
     

    Numismatic Bibliomania Society Vice President Wayne Homren is collecting email addresses for NBS members,  a process which began at the national meeting at the Portland  ANA convention.

    The resulting mailing list will be used to keep members and interested parties updated on NBS events and  changes to the NBS web site (http://www.money.org/club_nbs.html). 
     
    A number of folks signed up at the meeting in Portland.  To that initial group we've added the addresses of other current and former members that the Board is aware of, plus a few numismatic pen pals we thought might be interested. 
    This is intended to be a moderated, low-volume mailing list, with no more than one message every week or so.  Its purpose and use will evolve over time - please send us your comments and suggestions. 
    In the meantime, please visit our web site, and forward this  note to any other email pen-pal you think might have an interest. Remember, the list isn't limited to only NBS members.  Don't assume they're already on the list;  we're starting small, but with your help we can grow.

    Open F|S: Digital Zero
    Composite of 700 images from the Freer Ramayana.
    Composite of 700 images from the Freer Ramayana.
    Courtney O’Callaghan is chief digital officer at the Freer|Sackler.

    We’ve reached an important milestone at the Freer|Sackler, an effort we’re calling Digital Zero. As of this writing, we’ve become the first Smithsonian museums to digitize their collections. This is a great opportunity for scholars and researchers as well as our everyday virtual visitors to have 24/7 access to our works of art.

    What exactly is Digital Zero? For the Freer|Sackler, it means that we’ve photographed and uploaded our entire collection into a digital asset management system—more than 40,000 objects and almost twice as many images, from Whistler’s Peacock Room to the tiniest unnamed ceramic sherd. We have examined the rights information on every object and marked them appropriately. We have reviewed records, both complete and incomplete, and deemed them acceptable to make public.
    On January 1, 2015, we will finally share all of our objects and accompanying data with the public. We will make available 40,000+ works as high-resolution images with (often) detailed metadata, available for non-commercial use by anyone.

    Digital Zero gives us the freedom to begin the rapid prototyping of digital offerings. It allows us to focus on how our visitors want to interact with our collection. And it enables our creative allies to peruse our objects and form their own endlessly variable takes on the Freer|Sackler legacy.
    But this is simply the base from which we begin our digital journey. As our curators and their collaborators discover new insights, new connections, and new interpretations of our storied holdings, we must acknowledge the fact that our work is on shifting sands. Our understanding of our own collection continually evolves and changes.

    We hope that by releasing this information, we will encourage others to join our journey of discovery and help us fill in the gaps, share stories, and think of new ways to envision and enliven these objects. As we move from the idea of museums as spaces for the static delivery of a monolithic point of view into ones where our objects inspire communal storytelling, and where we share diverse perspectives that are alive and changing, we will be able to engage our visitors in ways that we cannot yet imagine.

    This is only the first phase. If you are interested in being part of our adventure, email us at openfs@si.edu and we will include you in our plans.

    Museum Helveticum

    Das Museum Helveticum ist die einzige Schweizer Zeitschrift, die Beiträge aus der gesamten klassischen Altertumswissenschaft veröffentlicht, einschliesslich der Papyrologie, Epigraphik und (mit Einschränkungen) Archäologie. Es will nicht nur die Schweizer Forschung fördern und repräsentativ darstellen, sondern auch die Kontakte mit der internationalen. Forschergemeinschaft pflegen und vertiefen. Entsprechend steht die Zeitschrift zum einen den in der Schweiz Lehrenden und Lernenden offen und versteht sich auch als Mittel der Nachwuchsförderung, zum anderen ist sie seit ihren Anfängen auch Publikationsorgan der internationalen Forschergemeinschaft; dementsprechend ist neben den drei Landessprachen Englisch häufige Publikationssprache. Entstanden ist das Museum Helveticum während des Zweiten Weltkrieges aus der Zusammenarbeit einiger damals führender altertumswissenschaftlicher Lehrstuhlinhaber, die, abgeschnitten von den bisherigen europäischen Publikationsorganen, der schweizerischen Altertumswissenschaft ein Diskussionsforum schaffen und gleichzeitig die Zusammengehörigkeit betonen wollten; die erste Nummer erschien 1944. Nach Kriegsende wurde die Zeitschrift zum Organ der schweizerischen altertumswissenschaftlichen Forschung.
    All issues are published online 20 months after print publication.

    Swiss Mummy Project

    The Swiss Mummy Project (SMP) is a research project based at the Institute of Evolutionary Medicine (IEM), University of Zurich.
    The aim of the Swiss Mummy Project is to investigate ancient human mummies of multiple cultural and geographical backgrounds with state-of-the-art scientific methods. This allows gaining insights into the evolution of disease, human variation but also socio-cultural aspects.

    Egyptian Funerary Cones Wiki

     [First posted in AWOL 27 January 2011, updated 15 December 2014]

    Data on Funerary Cones

    This website is one of wikis, in other words, WE can edit and update the pages like Wikipedia. 
    Editing this site is easier than it: we do not have to know HTML or other special syntax. All you have to do is just type as you like, the same way you always do when you use MS WORD or other tools. 
    As for the browsers, seeing and editing with Google Chrome is highly recommended since IE, Fire Fox, and other browsers collapse the appearances.

    The owner hopes this site to be used as the online reference for funerary cones.

    If you wish to get involved, you are kindly requested to get Google account and send email to me, the owner of this site, Kento Zenihiro and he will invite you as a coeditor (as long as he is alive!).

    In fact, the best way I think is not to take this procedure but to edit directly without being "invited" by me. 
    Due to today's Google sites' system however, you cannot do so. 
    If you know other wiki-style sites that enable you to edit pages while you remain to be anonymous, and do not require us to use special syntax, please tell me.

    Do not hesitate to send me the emails. I can always reply within 24 hours.

    First posted 2/1/10. Updated 3/2/11 with the addition of the Mesopotamian Directory 2011 and the removal of the International Directory of Hittitologists and Anatolianists (has that reappeared somewhere?  I can't find it).  Updated 5/19/11 with the addition of the Directory of Ancient Historians in the United States and Canada Updated (links checked and fixed, AMESA added, 16 October 2013. Updated 16 December 2014]

    I also use the online directories of scholarly and professional societies, which I don't list here because on the whole they are restricted to access by their members.

    Are there other important directories I'm missing? What do you use to find people and places in your own disciplines? Reply in the comments below if you can.
