Resources for Scholars

ACOR is a unique environment where students, scholars and professionals study, live, and do research. The most significant resource of ACOR is the library. The library holds over 45,000 books, journals and other texts on a range of topics related to the archeology, anthropology, and cultural heritage of Jordan and the Middle Eastern areas. Within the library scholars can also read current periodicals and access electronic archives of scientific journals through the J-STOR online database. The library offers spacious tables and other quiet spaces perfect for reading and writing. 

For the Jordanian and international research community, ACOR offers a supportive environment where excavation and field teams can rent equipment, make use of special work spaces as well as the conservation laboratory for cleaning, sorting and cataloging archaeological finds.

ACOR’s publication series and newsletters illuminate a wealth of information about significant archaeological and cultural resource management projects in Jordan.
