The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago announces the online publication and distribution of its Archeological Newsletters: From the 1950s to early 1973 (Oct 15, 1950-Mar 11, 1973) the Oriental Institute issued these archaeological newsletters to members and friends. The newsletters were written mostly by Oriental Institute faculty and researchers about their travels and work at more than thirty sites in the Middle East (Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Egypt, India, and more). The newsletters were infrequently, then in 1973 Director John A. Brinkman initiated an expanded newsletter, News & Notes, that continued the field reports and included other news from the Institute.

The upload and distribution of these newsletters, more than 220 in number and more than 650 pages, completes the distribution of the older titles published by the Oriental Institute, At present every title since the Institute inception -- more than 450 -- is available for complimentary download.
