New ISAW Library Titles: June 2017

By Gabriel McKee

A list of books added to the ISAW Library in June 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 June 2017 map is available here.]

The 247 volumes added to the collection in June include a number of journals related to Anatolia, including Gephyra (Oak Collection DS155 .G47), Philia (Oak Collection DS155 .P55), and Colloquium anatolicum (Oak Collection DR401 .C65). In addition to these journals, we received several volumes publishing the results of the ongoing Italian excavations at Hierapolis (Oversize Collection DS156.H53 D355).The Caucasus, the northern Black Sea region, and Central Asia are also well-represented, thanks to a number of scarce Russian publications from the library of Aleksandr Leskov. Further volumes on Central Asia, as well as a number of titles on China and India, come to us from the library of Susan L. Beningson.

As always, the titles added to the ISAW Library for the entire academic year may be found both on our website and in our Zotero library. You can also follow our progress on Facebook and Twitter.
