Egyptology Resources PDF Bibliography

Update 23 October 2023

A few years ago I started a PDF file bibliography at the University of Memphis, with the collection and input of data done by graduate assistants. The home page of the project is still there, but the data itself suddenly became unavailable in August 2017, so the decision was made to move it to Egyptology Resources, where it can be developed further. [Note: it has since reappeared, without updates]. The following introduction is basically that on the original site.

The data comes frosm a variety of sources, including the EEF site and elsewhere. In March 2020 I resumed work on it, along with tidying the data and removing duplicate entries. From April 2020 I have started adding files from open access Egyptology journals: BIFAO and Prague Egyptological Studies are now completed. I am doing my utmost to update this file once a week if possible, but in 2023 this has been more difficult from pressure of other things.

The current full data file may be found here

Egyptology books and articles online

Posted on 7 April 2020

The world-wide-web is replete with links to Egyptological resources, and there are many pages of bibliography out there, of which the prime example is the Online Egyptological Bibliography. But as yet, none of the more systematic bibliographies are publishing links to the actual PDF files of books and articles which may be freely acquired online, although they may be collecting the URL references. This project attempts to go some way toward filling that gap.

This project is a "work in progress", and is bound to contain errors and omissions. The document takes the form of one large HTML file with the data arranged by author; links to both the web page from which the file can be accessed and the PDF file for the document itself are given. Searching must be done using the Find function of your web browser. It is hoped that a searchable version can be produced soon.

The data collection and arrangment before June 2015 was undertaken by Andrea Middleton, Brooke Garcia, and Robyn Price, Graduate Assistants in the Institute of Egyptian Art and Archaeology, a unit of the Department of Art in the University of Memphis (Tennessee, USA). The project is really grateful to them for their huge efforts, and the funding that allowed them to work on it.

The project tries to seek out as many books and articles as possible on Egyptological subjects which are freely accessible to anyone without the need for privileged access. Thus sites such as the Internet Archive, the University of Heidelberg Library, the Oriental Institute, the Metropolitan Museum, the Giza Library, Ancient World Online (AWOL), and many more were searched, as well as attempting to collect links noted in the pages of EEF (Egyptologists' Electronic Forum) News.

Sites which require institutional access or a password are NOT included—thus journals on JSTOR have not been indexed. Nor have papers available on been included here. It is likely that some articles on JSTOR are duplicated elsewhere, and it is equally possible that some articles and books are available at more than one location. In the latter case, we have tried to give all the options.

Please report comments, errors, omissions, etc. to ncs3[at] It is hoped that this work is useful.
