Arranging and describing the contents of three geographically dispersed archives that focus on archaeological excavations and the history of archaeology in the Middle East from 1871 to the present, as well as creating finding aids and mounting digitized materials on the Internet.

The American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR) seeks $300,903 from the National Endowment of the Humanities for a project 1) to unite the three portions of its historic, yet previously inaccessible archive collections, 2) to digitize and publish online most of the items, and 3) to establish a finding aid on the internet with metatags that will dramatically increase public and scholarly access to this material. The requested fund from the NEH will be combined with cost-sharing contributions of $137,488 from ASOR, Boston University, and the Harvard Semetic Museum. These materials describe archaeological and historical explorations of the eastern Mediterranean and range in date from the end of the nineteenth century through the end of the twentieth century. The collections consist of over 410 lineal feet of documents, 15 drawers of maps and plans, and approximately 20 boxes of photographs and glass negatives.
