Keilschriftbibliographie

Alternative Titles
KeiBi
Description

Die in der Zeitschrift Orientalia des Päpstlichen Bibelinstituts in Rom erscheinende Internationale Keilschriftbibliographie (KeiBi) ist seit ihrer ersten Ausgabe im Jahre 1940 (Orientalia N.S. Bd. 9) zu einem unentbehrlichen Hilfsmittel für Forschung, Lehre und Studium der altorientalistischen Disziplinen geworden. Jedoch - wie in allen gedruckten, über einen längeren Zeitraum hinweg erscheinenden Bibliographien - ist die Recherche darin nicht ohne Mühe. Um dies zu erleichtern, präsentieren wir die KeiBi-Daten in Form einer Datenbank, in der alle erschienenen Ausgaben gleichzeitig durchsucht werden können.
