Brunner Digital (Egyptological) Collection at Macquarie University

Brunner Digital Collection
The Brunner Collection was formed through a donation by Professors Hellmut Brunner and Emma Brunner-Traut in the early 1990s. The donation consisted of books, journals, reprints, catalogues and pamphlets in the field of Egyptology, many of which were annotated by Professor Brunner.
Over the past 60 years the collection has expanded through purchases from the Rundle Foundation for Egyptian Archaeology. The collection now contains over 2,000 titles including long runs of major journals, as well as several thousand offprints which are rare and valuable.

In 2005, funding from a Vice-Chancellor's Development Fund was used to establish the Brunner Digitisation Project. The main objective of this project was to digitise selected volumes from the Brunner Collection in collaboration with the Department of Ancient History and the Learning and Teaching Centre to create the Brunner Digital Collection.
Digitised titles can be found in the Library's Catalogue by performing an author search for Brunner Digitisation Project.

Due to copyright conditions, access to some titles is limited to Macquarie University authorised staff and students. Any restrictions will be indicated in the title.
 The following titles in the Brunner Digital Collection appear to be accessible without restriction:
