Falvey Memorial Library now subscribes to the Online Egyptological Bibliography, the premier research tool for Egyptologists. It indexes a wide range of publications in the field, including journal articles, books, book chapters, and conference proceedings. The content reflects the multilingual nature of the Egyptological community and abstracts may be in English, French, or German. Newer records include digital object identifiers (DOI) and links to online publications. The coverage of the bibliography extends back to 1822.
Published by Oxford University’s Griffith Institute, in cooperation with the International Association of Egyptologists, the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, and the Universität Heidelberg, the Bibliography is the successor to the Annual Egyptological Bibliography, founded in 1947. It also includes Christine Beinlich-Seeber’s Bibliographie Altägypten and records from the Aigyptos database.
The Bibliography uses the Trlit CG Times font for the display of Egyptian transliteration characters, and it is recommended users connect to the Bibliography via the Mozilla Firefox web browser to ensure the correct display of the phonetic Unicode characters. It can be accessed through the Library’s Databases A-Z list.
