Many of the volumes on Nimrud, including Cuneiform Texts from Nimrud vols. 1-5 and Ivories from Nimrud 1-6, as well as several of our other publications, were digitised for us by the AHRC-funded Nimrud project.

The books in the series of Abu Salabikh Excavations, Tell Brak Excavations and Iraq Archaeological Reports were digitised by the Archive of Mesopotamian Archaeological Reports at Stony Brook University Digital Library.
