Literature Searching: Dyabola

  • website | Publicly viewable

DYABOLA is a database interface program providing access to (among other databases) the Archäologische Bibliographie, a near-comprehensive bibliographical store of the monograph and periodical literature of classical archaeology from 1956 to the present day, based on the subject catalogue (Realkatalog) of the unrivalled library collections of the Deutsches Archaologisches Institut in Rome.

DYABOLA is an acronym for DYnamical Accumulating DataBase on the Objects and Literature of Archaeology and classical studies.

The Dyabola interface is not always intuitive. This guide, from the UC Berkeley, leads you through entering and searching the catalogue.
