Cataloging and Archiving at the Center for the Tebtunis Papyri

The Center for the Tebtunis Papyri (CTP) recently received thousands of unstudied papyri fragments, so I will catalog them by measuring, describing, and properly storing them. I will also update the CTP’s online catalog by imaging additional papyri for the collection and making edits to the existing catalog. This way, the CTP will be able to offer new and better research materials to scholars worldwide through the Library’s Digital Collections platform. Lastly, I will continue working on the Smyly Correspondence Project, a collaborative project, which entails digitizing archival materials related to the history of the CTP’s collection.


Message To Sponsor

Thank you so much for supporting this opportunity! It is such a unique experience to be able to handle ancient materials, and this stipend will allow me to work with the CTP's collection even more closely. I am very excited to continue my work this summer, and I'm extremely grateful for the support.
