The initial publications on AWDL 1.0 were primarily Egyptology-related and scanned from the collection of the Institute of Fine Arts Library by the NYU Libraries Digital Library Technology Services. These publications include works by some of the most important Egyptologists of the 19th and early 20th centuries, such as W. M. Flinders Petrie, Alan Gardiner, George Reisner, Percy Newberry, and various others. To browse the collection of Egyptology publications on AWDL, navigate to the “Collections Overview” tab, and select “Egyptology.”
Now that all of the books from the first AWDL website are available on the new website, AWDL 1.0 is slated to be turned off sometime in the near future. Users who have linked to the URLs from the first website do not need to worry that they will have broken links, because we have taken care to set up a table of redirects to the republished items on the current AWDL website.
As always, content in AWDL is freely available to read online in full resolution, or it can be downloaded in either high- or low-resolution PDF formats.
