International Association for Obsidian Studies
Welcome to the International Association for Obsidian Studies (IAOS) home page. From here, you can find out about the IAOS and explore technical information related to obsidian characterization ("sourcing") studies and obsidian hydration dating methods.
IAOS BULLETIN 50 (WINTER 2014) IS NOW OUT: All issues of the IAOS Bulletin are now available for downloading as searchable Adobe Acrobat documents. Point, click, and print to complete your library.
WILLAMETTE ANALYTICS OBSIDIAN HYDRATION LABORATORY: The obsidian hydration laboratory that was formerly part of Northwest Research Obsidian Studies Laboratory is now the newest independent hydration analysis lab. Click HERE for the details.
NEW IAOS BULLETIN E-MAIL: Submissions to the IAOS Bulletin can be made to Carolyn Dillian, the Bulletin editor, at the now not-so-new permanent email address: IAOS.firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE IAOS PDF LIBRARY: We've begun to assemble an ever-expanding collection of obsidian-related full-text articles, reports, monographs, papers, theses, and dissertations, all in searchable Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. If you have PDF's that you'd like to contribute to the new PDF library, we would very much like to hear from you! To add a reference to the library, simply send an email to email@example.com, write "IAOS LIBRARY" in the subject line of the email, and attach the PDF's that you'd like to contribute. Latest addition: Skinner and Tremains (1993).
A BLAST FROM THE IAOS PAST: I recently ran across a copy of the IAOS Obsidian Bibliography from 1993. This was a freebie for all IAOS members at the time and was our one and only IAOS Occasional Paper. To download a copy of this now charmingly obsolete pre-WWW research tool, head over to the IAOS online library and look for Skinner and Tremaine (1993).
TAKE CARE OF YOUR MEMBERSHIP DUES ONLINE: We have a recently-updated membership payment option that is run through PayPal. Click HERE for the details.
