Online Egyptological Bibliography (OEB) includes the volumes of the previous Annual Egyptological Bibliography (AEB) combined with the Bibliographie Altägypten (BA), covering Egyptological literature from 1822 to 2002 (roughly 70,000 items), as well as increasing coverage of 2003-2012 (in total over 90,000 items). OEB is now a joint project with Aigyptos, and the number of available items is rising rapidly as Aigyptos records enter the OEB database.
OEB uses the Trlit CG Times font for the display of Egyptian Transliteration characters, and recommends the Mozilla Firefox web browser for the correct display of the phonetic Unicode characters. Microsoft Internet Explorer may not display all of the characters correctly. (OCLC)
