Like many University Libraries, the University of Maryland Libraries faces multiple challenges in the effort to build and maintain collections and provide access to the resources needed to support the institutional research and teaching mission. The collection budget at UMCP, like many other institutions, has failed to keep up with the rising costs of the information marketplace. One result of these budgetary constraints is that the Libraries' subscription to DYABOLA will not be renewed. Access to the database ended in December 2015.  

Alternative sources of information include:

  • L’Annee Philologique  Index to journal articles, books, articles in collections, and conference papers on multiple aspects of ancient Greek and Roman civilization.
  • AATA Online  Index for technical literature on archeological preservation.
  • JSTOR Archeology  Includes complete run (except for most recent years) of 152 archeology journals.
  • Art and Architecture Complete  Provides indexing, abstracting, and/or full text of journal articles and other publications about art history and related subjects, including archeology.  
  • ARTstor  Repository of hundreds of thousands of digital images, from across many periods and cultures, including the ancient world.
