Happy New Year

Happy New Year to Ancient World Online readers everywhere. You are looking at AWOL pages well over a million times a year now, and I'm grateful for your interest. If you have ideas for making AWOL better, send them along. If you know of open access scholarship worthy of mention, let me know!

Make sure you look at The AWOL Index which systematically describes ancient-world information resources on the world-wide web. The bibliographic data presented herein has been programmatically extracted from the content of AWOL - The Ancient World Online (ISSN 2156-2253) and formatted in accordance with a structured data model. In continuous operation since 2009, AWOL is a blog authored by Charles E. Jones, Tombros Librarian for Classics and Humanities at the Pattee Library, Penn State University.

This publication, The AWOL Index, is an experimental project, developed jointly by Jones and Tom Elliott, the Associate Director for Digital Programs at New York University's Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW), with the assistance of Pavan Atri, Roger Bagnall, Dawn Gross, Sebastian Heath, Gabriel McKee, Ronak Parpani, David Ratzan, and Kristen Soule.
Creation of The AWOL Index was made possible by a grant from the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
