History / Biographical Note
Biographical / Historical
APIS, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities, grew from the digitization of papyrus collections from a consortium of universities, including Columbia, Duke, Yale, and Michigan in the early '90s, overseen by the American Society of Papyrologists. Though the APIS project no longer continues, the images and metadata created from this joint project are still maintained by the institutions involved and are available through Papyri.info.
