Oriental Institute Makes Accessing Its Collections Even Easier

  The Oriental Institute welcomes researchers to make use of our wide-ranging collection of ancient Near Eastern artifacts as well as our expansive photographic and document archives. In order to facilitate access to our collections, we have created a new section on our website entitled Access the Collections. From the landing page, you will find links to pages devoted to Museum Registration, Museum Archives, and the Tablet Collection and to photo requests and permissions to publish. Guidelines and fillable PDF request forms are available for all modes of access. We hope this new feature of our website, alongside our ever-growing Search Our Collections, will encourage the use of the Oriental Institute collections.
