Biblical archaeology collections at colleges and universities are typically remnants of an earlier era of collecting and teaching.

In this article a recent Oberlin College graduate and one of his college faculty mentors team up to address these questions and offer practical advice for revitalizing legacy biblical archaeology collections, using the Oberlin Near East Study Collection (ONESC) as a case study.
