What's New in Egyptology?
Researching Egyptology in AUC Libraries
This guide serves as a starting point for researchers and students interested in Egyptology. It contains information on selected resources from the AUC collections, and provides links to a number of e-resources, including reference sources, databases and indexes, e-book and journal collections. Please note that while some electronic resources are freely available, others are subscription services provided by the AUC Library, so remote access may be necessary when accessing from off-campus.
There is a separate guide for Coptic Studies. Note that you can also find some relevant tools in some other guides, such as Ancient Near East Research Guide, etc.
Hisotry of AUC Egyptology Collections
Selim Hassan Labib Habachi Gaballa Aly Gaballa
The Egyptology collection in the AUC Libraries is established of libraries and archives of eminent Egyptologists, such as Labib Habachi (1906-1984) , Selim Hanssan (1886 - 1961), Gaballa Aly Gaballa (1939-2012), Constant de Wit (1907-1989), Shehata Adam (1917-1986) and Abdel Moneim Abu Bakr (1907-1976). Material relating to excavation and archaeology forms the core of the collection, and many excavation reports relating to Egypt itself are obtained regularly (e.g. the publications of leading Egyptological institutions, such as the Egypt Exploration Society, Institut Français d'Archéologie Orientale and the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut). There is also material on Egyptian art, religion, architecture, history, and ancient Egyptian language and literature.
Other relvant collections include Coptic Studies and Ancient Near East History, which are divided between AUC's Main Library and RBSC Library.
