Re: [ANE-2] What BAIAS is (=not obscure)
- I took less time to find the information Bob provided than it takes to type this message (but I'm a
bad, slow, typist).
Bulletin of the Anglo-Israel Archaeological Society, Vol. 18 (2000) - present, is also available
online for those with access to a library subscribing to EBSCOHost Academic Search Premier. Peter
does not, so I sent him a copy of the article in question.

I'd never heard of EBSCOHost, but it appears that I have access to it. It
does not help me in trying to identify BAIAS.
But now that I know what the abbreviation stands for, I try again.
EBSCOHost does not identify any journal with the title "Bulletin of the
Anglo-Israel Archaeological Society". What am I doing wrong?
I don't have any problems with JSTOR, so there must be something odd about
EBSCOHost. Maybe it wants an American spelling? I'm lost, but now can't even
remember why I was ever interested in the first place!
