The Friends of ASOR Resource Page is an online resource for all things ancient Near Eastern. The FOA Resource Page brings together far-flung links to libraries, publications, museums, exhibitions, projects and much more. This page will be a prime destination for scholars, students and lay people who want a master portal into the world of the Ancient Near East. The page is still under development, so take the opportunity to tell us what kind of online resources would be useful to you.
