Individual Scholarship


Charles E. Jones

Charles Jones' research centered on the development and maintenance of the collections and catalogs of the Research Archives (see 96-97 Research Archives report), and, in collaboration with John Sanders, on the development of the electronic resources of the Oriental Institute (see 96-97 Electronic Resources report). Under development is an entirely recast and restructured version of Abzu. The volume of material currently available on-line is simply too large to be dealt with by means of a series of simple text files. Jones is investigating the application of databases and searchable indexes and an alternative means of supplying the information included in the currently available indexes. As compiler and editor of Abzu, Jones has been selected as one of the Associate Editors of Argos, a Limited Area Search Engine (among the first such devices) dedicated to searching, indexing, and providing access to the portion of the Internet dealing with ancient and medieval history.
