Welcome to the Online Egyptological Bibliography (OEB).

The Online Egyptological Bibliography (OEB) holds the largest available collection of references in Egyptological literature and is updated nearly every day. It includes the records and abstracts from Annual Egyptological Bibliography (AEB, 1947-2001), combined with Bibliographie Altägypten (BA, 1822-1946), the Aigyptos database with keywords, and more than 20,000 further items. Coverage is from 1822 to the present. Enhancements are announced as they are introduced. For What’s new see below.

What's new

December 2016: OEB has more than 127,200 records online, an increase of 5700 in a year during which 10,000 items have been processed. Balancing the over 1100 publications from 2016 is material from as far back as the early 19th century. This derives from work on Bibliographie Altägypten and the Hendrickx Bibliography. We have also begun to add links and DOIs for digitized out-of-copyright items that are on the University of Heidelberg’s website.

Minor improvements the last two months enhance the accuracy of search results, both from the search bar at the top of the screen and from the structured search.

As emphasized in earlier updates, we are very grateful for references to publications outside the main run of Egyptology. These can be sent through the 'Submit material' button on the OEB home page, if possible with pdf copies. We also greatly welcome draft abstracts and keywords supplied by authors for OEB records that do not include them; these should be sent to oebeditor@orinst.ox.ac.uk.
