Achaemenid Royal Inscriptions Project
The aim of the Achaemenid Royal Inscriptions project is to create an electronic study edition of the inscriptions of the Achaemenid Persian kings from Persepolis, where the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago carried out excavations between 1931 and 1939, presenting the texts in all of their versions--Old Persian, Elamite, Akkadian, and, where appropriate, Aramaic and Egyptian--and showing the inscriptions in their architectural contexts.

The Chicago Assyrian Dictionary Project
The Chicago Assyrian Dictionary, initiated in 1921 by James Henry Breasted, is compiling a comprehensive dictionary of the various dialects of Akkadian, the earliest known Semitic language that was recorded on cuneiform texts that date from c. 2400 B.C. to A.D. 100 which were recovered from archaeological excavations of ancient Near Eastern sites.

The Chicago Hittite Dictionary Project
The Chicago Hittite Dictionary Project (CHD) was officially started in 1975 with the awarding of an NEH grant to Harry A. Hoffner and Hans G. GŁterbock, the editors. It was conceived in answer to a recognized need for a Hittite-English lexical tool, a concordance for lexicographical research for all parts of the corpus of Hittite texts.

The Royal Inscriptions of Mesopotamia Project
The goal of the RIM project is to make the inscriptions of the rulers of ancient Mesopotamia available to layman and specialist alike by publishing standard editions of all the texts. Mesopotamia was home to one of the two first great civilizations of the world. The civilization created by the Assyrians, Babylonians, Sumerians, and Akkadians around the Tigris and Euphrates rivers flourished for over two and a half millennia (ca. 3000-500 BC). The inscriptions of its rulers recorded their many achievements, were written in the cuneiform script and were composed primarily in the Akkadian and Sumerian languages.

The Sumerian Text Archive
The Sumerian Text Archive offers a growing collection of transliterated Sumerian texts. These texts have been transliterated using only characters from the ASCII alphabet so that the text files can be used on every type of computer. As a result, however, the transliterations deviate in a number of ways from what is common practice in Sumerology.
