Oriental Institute Research Archives On-Line Catalogue

Announced on February 10, 2000, the online catalog of the Research Archives of the Oriental Institute, University of Chicago allows users to search the Archive's 35,000 holdings, which focus on the history of the ancient Near East from prehistoric times through the Late Antique period. Six different search methods are offered: keyword, author, title, subject, LCCN or ISBN, and expert searching. Sample keyword searches for "Babylon" produced 231 hits, while one for "Ur" produced 440. Search returns consist of rather sparse bibliographic information, limited primarily to title, author, publisher and date, and number of pages. Please note that the Research Archives collection is non-circulating and that anyone desiring to use the Archives is expected to become a member of the Oriental Institute. This requirement, however, will not deter scholars of the ancient Near East who desire to use the Institute's unique and valuable collection.
Alternate Title
