Description
The Jeffrey R. Parsons digital images are part of the Jeffrey R. Parsons collection housed at the University of Michigan's Bentley Historical Library. Mr. Parsons generously donated the photographs to the University of Michigan Regents, also assigning the copyright to the Regents. The images document the archaeologist's field work in the Basin of Mexico and in Peru and are part of the collections' visual materials series. These depict terrain survey work, a variety of ceramic work, and multiple archaeological sites. Among the locations documented here are Ixtapalapa, Zumpango, Texcoco, Chalco, Xochimilco, Jauja, Huasahuasi, Junin, and Tarma.

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.

Egyptian Amulets, Kelsey Museum of Archaeology

Alternative Titles
Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Egyptian Amulets
Description

The Egyptian Amulet catalog is a collaborative project between the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, and UM's Digital Library Production Service. It was created between January and May of 1998. It was initially developed on a fairly small scale (roughly 360 items) and the catalog's purpose was to demonstrate the feasibility and value of transfering the Kelsey catalog of artifacts from a proprietary database system to an SGML-based system providing ubiquitous web access. Images of the Egyptian Amulets exist for each record in the database (and are also listed in the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Artifacts Database).
