The Oriental Institute has posted most of the remaining volumes of The Assyrian Dictionary of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. I’m glad they shortened the name to CAD rather than ADOIUC. Only U/W, the print copy of which is still in preparation, remains. The volumes are in PDF format and all but the newest are scanned images with a hidden OCR-ed text that allows searching. It is unfortunate that the dictionary will not move the next step to become a true electronic dictionary.
Of course it only makes sense that the dictionary would go up on my second to last day of Akkadian class. Oh well, I guess I can use it for comps.Uncategorized
