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 50,000 further items. Coverage is from 1822 to the present. OEB is a collaboration of the University of Oxford and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich. Enhancements are announced as they are introduced.

What's new

June 2021: The Relationships element introduced in late 2020 has been extended to many additional records. Records of more than 10,000 reviews are now online and linked to the items reviewed. The large task of adding reviews continues.

The proportion of new records in OEB that include abstracts has increased. Authors are reminded of the value of abstracts for making their work visible and are encouraged to send abstracts for items that lack them to OEB through the 'Submit material' facility on this website, or by emailing oebedit@orinst.ox.ac.uk. Information about publications that are absent from OEB is also much appreciated.

Both users and OEB editors are very grateful to the publishers who send copies of new books for inclusion in OEB. This ensures rapid dissemination of information about their products.

There are now more than 157,900 records online in OEB, with more than 152,200 checked and released by editors. Newly revised records include many with links to books and articles that have been made available online during the C5VID-19 crisis, notably through Hathi Trust. OEB has maintained open access as the COVID-19 crisis has continued. This facility will be withdrawn as conditions ease. Notice of when it is to cease will be given on the OEB home page.

Francisco Bosch-Puche, who has worked for the Griffith Institute for a number of years, is now Acting Coordinating Editor of OEB.
