The third entry in AWOL in early May 2008: AWOL - The Ancient World Online - 3 was a survey of Peter Manuelian's Giza Archives Project, at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts which includes a "a freely accessible, online library of monographs, articles, and manuscripts on the Giza Necropolis".
The current inventory of the Giza Library includes every Giza book and article by the members of the Harvard University–Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition (George Reisner, William Stevenson Smith, Dows Dunham, etc.), as well as every Egyptian and Nubian article ever published in the Bulletin of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (BMFA). It also includes all volumes of the more recent Giza Mastabas Series, edited by Peter Der Manuelian and William Kelly Simpson. Finally, current scholarship is also well represented.

Selected Articles from Our Specialists: Material Culture Analysts and Archaeological ScienceWe take a multi-disciplinary view in analyzing the complex archaeological site of the Giza Plateau demands. To help our readers to gain a better understanding of the many specialist disciplines that we use in our study of ancient Egypt, we will post a variety of articles from our field and storeroom specialists on this page. We hope that this will give you a sense of the AERA philosophy of looking at Egyptian archaeology from all sides.

Giza Plateau Mapping Project (AERA in association with the Oriental Institute - Chicago)
The Giza Plateau Mapping Project, under the direction of Mark Lehner, Visiting Assistant Professor of Egyptian archaeology at the Oriental Institute, is dedicated to research on the geology and topography of the Giza plateau, the construction and function of the Sphinx, the Great Pyrimids, the associated tombs and temples, and the Old Kingdom town in the vicinity. Lehner is a pioneer in the use of state-of-the-art computer graphics and remote sensing technology to model the ancient configuration of the Giza Plateau. In addition he has collaborated with an architectural firm to produce a detailed computer model of the Sphnix which is of exceptional value both as a research tool and to guide current conservation efforts.
