Causing His Name to Live: Studies in Egyptian Epigraphy and History in Memory of William J. Murnane
Culture and History of the Ancient Near East Volume 37
Edited by Peter Brand and Louise Cooper
(E. J. Brill Academic Publishers: Leiden, 2009)
ISBN 978 90 04 176447 * ISSN 1566-2055

This is not a new item online.  Articles for this volume began appearing here several years ago, and now the volume is complete and published.

What is most interesting is the following statement
Through the generosity of E. J. Brill, all of the content of the book Causing His Name to Live will remain available here for free public use. Although the content is the same, the typesetting and formatting of the material on this website differs from that of the printed book.
While at € 121.00 / US$ 179.00, this is not the most expensive of books from Brill, it still works out to 39 cents a page foir the print version, considerably more than the going rate for photocopying.  I hope that authors and editors will take note of this open access model, and secure the permission from their publishers (if required) and post the content of books online, preferably in institutional repositories which will ensure long term accessibility.
