With the generous support of a grant from the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, ISAW has published a new, structured bibliography of ancient-world resources on the world-wide web entitled The AWOL Index. This experimental digital publication, co-authored by ISAW Senior Fellow Charles E. Jones and Associate Director for Digital Programs Tom Elliott, is programmatically extracted from the contents of The Ancient World Online, a blog that Jones has been authoring since 2009. The work represents a much larger collaboration — with the ISAW Library and the NYU Digital Library Technology Services team, for example — and will be used to inform and supply a variety of discovery and digital preservation initiatives now in incubation. The AWOL Index is published under an open license to facilitate the widest possible application and reuse of the data. More information is available on the title page of the publication itself.
