About cdli:wiki

cdli:wiki represents the efforts of CDLI staff and collaborators to offer Assyriological tools for specialists in cuneiform studies, general content for informal learners, and information about the work flow of the project.

cdli:wiki is currently undergoing major revisions.

The articles will be arranged under five main categories placed in the navigation bar on the left: writing and language, history and chronology, archaeology, science and religion, and tools and resources. In the main column below we have placed a news feed (RSS) displaying recently added and updated articles from cdliwiki.

Important tools such as lists of year names and eponyms are found under the section "Chronology". Bibliographical resources, such as Abbreviations for Assyriology, are found under "Bibliographical tools".

The notes also tie the etcsl catalogue numbers to the corresponding Q-catalogue numbers (used in CDLI as composite id's).
