Berkeley Prosopography Services (BPS) is exploring and developing a prototype application to build prosopographical models that support research. The prototype focuses on a corpus of cuneiform tablets transcribed into Babylonian. The project originated as a collaboration between UC Berkeley's IST - Data Services group (now Research Information Technology) and the Near Eastern Studies Department.

Prosopography identifies and relates a group of persons or characters within a particular historical or literary context
