AWOL and ISAW News

As of this morning the number of email addresses subscribed to The Ancient World Online by way of the FeedBurner utility has passed six hundred. I'm pleased that so many of you find it useful enough to subscribe. I welcome your feedback in the form of comments on in individual posts, or directly.

I am considering ways to make the data presented here more bibliographically accessible. Here at the ISAW Library we are developing schemes to create MARC records for the open access resources for which such records are appropriate. I am also considering developing a publicly accessible Zotero bibliography parallel to AWOL.

For those of you who have not already seen it, I would like to draw your attention to the exhibition at ISAW which opened earlier this month.
