Topographical Bibliography of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic Texts, Statues, Reliefs and Paintings
This is the most important Egyptological project undertaken by the Griffith Institute. The Bibliography is used world-wide.

Griffith Institute Publications
Information on books published by the Griffith Institute which are in print, and how to order them. Some of the most influential books in Egyptology, such as Gardiner's Grammar and Faulkner's Dictionary have been published by the Griffith Institute.

The Library
The Egyptology and Ancient Near East section of the Sackler Library in Oxford is probably the most complete library of its kind in the world. The monthly lists of accessions available here are, in fact, a comprehensive annual bibliography of what is published in these subjects.

Research Tools and Publications in Egyptology 2002-2008
We leave it others to maintain long lists of links to Web sites associated with Ancient Egypt, often of indifferent or dubious value. These are carefully selected Web sites which will save you time during your research. Publications in Egyptology 2002-2007 fills that crucial gap between the Annual Egyptological Bibliography and now.
