INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR OBSIDIAN STUDIES

Welcome to the IAOS PDF Library

Welcome to the IAOS online library, a growing collection of obsidian-related Master's theses and Ph.D. dissertations, all in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. The documents below may be viewed online with a web browser or can be downloaded and perused or printed with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. The documents available here are fully searchable from within Adobe Acrobat Reader.

What happened to the original PDF library?: Since I first began compiling the IAOS PDF Library, several significant online research sources (see below) have fluorished and they can do a lot better job at staying on top of the many obsidian-related journal articles than I can. Many of the articles previously posted here were becoming increasingly redundant because of those online sources. And although I'm a big fan of open-access publications and am not fond of paywall access, I also didn't want to step on any journal publisher's toes and this seemed like a good solution to that potential issue.

Note to authors of documents posted here: I've made the implicit assumption that if a Master's or Bachelor's thesis or Ph.D. dissertation is posted online without restriction it is publicly available for distribution. If you are the author or publisher of a document posted here and would like us to remove it, please contact the webmaster and it will be promptly dealt with.

Note to contributors: If you have a thesis or dissertation that you'd like add to this list, simply send an email to obsidianlab@gmail.com, write "IAOS LIBRARY" in the subject line of the email, and attach the PDF's that you'd like to add to the library. We'll make sure the item is promptly posted here. And if you have a PDF of a thesis or dissertation that's in better shape than several of the ones listed below, we'd sincerely appreciate a replacement copy.

Acknowledgements: My thanks to Nikolaos Laskaris for initially spurring me to begin assembling this collection and special thanks goes to Chris Lloyd for sharing his extensive personal PDF collection of obsidian-related documents. Nicholas Tripcevich adapted Chris' literature spreadsheet for Zotero.
