From the AIGYPTOS Project
Dear AIGYPTOS users,

since July 2011, no new entries have been added to the AIGYPTOS database. Nevertheless, the website will remain freely available until the second half of 2013. AIGYPTOS is now working with the Online Egyptological Bibliography (OEB), the successor of the Annual Egyptological Bibliography (AEB). The two databases are being integrated, and the majority of AIGYPTOS content is available in enhanced form on the OEB website. OEB also includes Bibliographie Altägypten (BA), providing seamless coverage of Egyptological literature from 1822 to the present. Furthermore, OEB has been expanded by many thousands of new items since 2011.

The AIGYPTOS keyword system is being adapted for use within OEB, to come online during 2013, in addition to the abstracts which are already available for the majority of items. We believe that the fusion of AIGYPTOS and OEB provides a much improved bibliographical service. The merged database is a pay site because it will be mainly self-funding in the longer run. For information on subscription rates, please visit http://oeb.griffith.ox.ac.uk/. We thank all AIGYPTOS users, especially those who supported us up to 2011 and helped to maintain the active development of the database.
The integration of the databases has been made possible by a grant to the project of USD 609,000.00 from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (June 2011 to May 2014).
