The Ancient World Digital Library (AWDL) is an initiative of the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW) at New York University. AWDL will identify, collect, curate, and provide access to a broad range of scholarly materials relevant to the study of the ancient world.

With NYU's Digital Library Technology Services (DLTS), AWDL is developing mechanisms to digitize, preserve, and host digitized print and born-digital scholarly content. Titles in AWDL can be read online in full resolution or downloaded in either high- or low-resolution PDF format.

Particular strengths of the AWDL collection include Ancient Judaism, Assyriology, Central Asia, Classical Antiquity, Early Christianity, Egyptology, Histology, Iranian Studies, and Papyrology.
