Tales from the Teche
A few online resources for studying the Near/Middle East
The Digital Library for International Research has a project to digitize important rare journals on Near Eastern studies. This includes the Yedi‘ot ha-Hevrah la-hakirat Erets-Yis'ra’el ve-‘atikoteha
of the Jewish Palestine Exploration Society. So far, the first 8 volumes (from the 1930's) are available in pdf format.
Another project of the Digital Library is Mapping Mediterranean Lands -- MedMaps Project "Traders and Travelers, Scholars, Soldiers, and Sailors: Charting in War and Peace" Thanks to Cincy faculty Steve Kaufman for pointing out this resource.
Another resource is the ETANA site. ETANA, or Electronic Tools and Ancient Near Eastern Archives, has links to online books, archives, bibliographies, archeology sites,and databases dealing with the Ancient Near East.
More information about doing research on the Ancient Near East is available on the Library Subject page.
