New databases for Archaeology
The Ancient World Online and Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum available now.
For Archaeology and Classical Studies two new databases are available: The Ancient World Online (AWOL) and Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum (CVA). The primary focus of AWOL is notice and comment on open access material (espec. journals) relating to the ancient world; CVA consists of a series of catalogues of mostly ancient Greek painted pottery in museum collections around the world, illustrating more than 100,000 vases in 24 countries.
The databases can be consulted via the hyperllinks in this article, but also via the Catalogue, tab Find Databases. Students and staff of Leiden University can also access the databases from outside the library with use of their ULCN-account.
For more information about these databases please contact the subject librarian Archaeology, Marijke van Kester. For all information about the use of databases and the library in general, please use our 'Ask a librarian' form.
