Announcing a New Blog: Ancient World Open Bibliographies

October 18, 2010

Today is the first day of Open Access Week (October 18-24, 2010).  I am happy to announce, in collaboration with Chuck Jones of the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University and the blog AWOL- The Ancient World Online, the debut of a new blog: Ancient World Open Bibliographies.  Please have a look and consider subscribing by RSS or email.

This new blog is for discussion and development of a project to collect and solicit annotated bibliographies about subjects relevant to studies of the ancient world.  It is the first concrete step to come from a conversation Chuck and I began after I posted  Oxford Bibliographies Online: More Rant Than Review. In this blog we will collect existing open access bibliographies we find on the web, and discuss the goals, audience, format, and scope of the final project: a dedicated wiki site collecting bibliographies, which will be open access.

I will continue to blog on more general issues related to classics resources and research at this address.
