The ADS Library brings together material from the British and Irish Archaeological Bibliography (BIAB), the ADS library of unpublished fieldwork reports as well as documents from the ADS archives and archaeological publishers such as Oxbow.

What's inside
You can search for bibliographic references with abstracts, download full articles from journals and monographs and find links to material outside our collections.

Beta testing
This is the beta interface of the new ADS library search. The interface is still under development with new functionality and datasets being added during the beta testing period. The content is undergoing data cleaning during this period as well.

We are interested in hearing your feedback on the interface to help us create the final version of the library in the next few months. Please email us at to send us your thoughts.
