Open Access Malqata

The blog iMalqata: A Michael C. Carlos Museum and Metropolitan Museum of Art iSITE, presents the work of that project:
The Joint Expedition to Malqata is co-sponsored by the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University in Atlanta and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Our work is done in co-operation with the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt.
The site of Malqata is located on the west bank of the Nile, opposite the modern city of Luxor, about 430 miles south of Cairo. Egyptologists usually refer to Luxor as Thebes, one of its ancient names, and the west bank is often called western Thebes...

It also includes a useful set of reports of earlier expeditions:
