III SEMNA Conference of Egyptology. National Museum of Rio de Janeiro (2015)

In an effort to support the development of Egyptology in Brazil, and in concert with the Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections, the UAEE provided free access to the journal for all III SEMNA conference (November 30-December 4, 2015) participants for one year. Obtaining specialized literature is a requisite for high quality research, but is often prohibitively expensive given the breadth and depth of materials needed. The collaboration of the journal and UAEE hopes to reduce this barrier, at least in part.
