In these pages, the World Museum, Liverpool, and the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI), an international research project based at the University of California, Los Angeles, present a database of more than 300 inscribed objects in the WML collection. The cuneiform tablets here were digitized by Ludek Vacin (postdoctoral research associate, Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin) during two visits to the collection in the spring of 2010, and processed at UCLA to standard fat-cross format of the CDLI.
