I K Barber Library

We have been lucky in that all the resources we need to digitize our artifact and squeeze collections are already up and running in other departments at UBC. We are excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with the  UBC Library’s Digital Initiatives to digitize our Squeeze Collection, and David Assaf has used Omeka to create an online gallery of our Artifact Collection for student use.

Our project has thus far been generously funded by the Department of Classical, Near Eastern, and Religious Studies  at UBC. They have provided funds to purchase archival storage for both collections, as well as the computer program needed to create the database.
