New ISAW Library Titles: July 2017

By Gabriel McKee

A list of books added to the ISAW Library in July 2017 is now available online on the ISAW Library website. The titles are sorted in the website version according to thematic topics (e.g., "East Asia" and "Ancient Near East & Asia Minor"); and within each topic, the titles are organized according to Library of Congress classification. The authors and titles of works in non-Roman languages are given in their original script. This list is also available in Zotero library and as a browsable map created using Google Fusion Tables. [Update, February 2021: Our new map interface is now live. The July 2017 map is available here.]

The 182 volumes added to the library's collection in July include the work of two of ISAW's own students: Jonathan Valk and Andrea Trameri's translation of Mario Liverani's Assyria: The Imperial Mission (Small Collection DS71 .L76 2017). Congratulations to Jonathan and Andrea on this publication!
