OPES is the database of the Papyrus Collection of the University of Oslo Library. It contains at the moment 210 of the ca. 280 published papyri (with the unpublished ones, the Collection has circa 2272 papyri), with images, translation, and metadata.

The languages of the documents are Greek, Egyptian (Coptic, Demotic, Hieratic), Latin and Arabic.
The project was named OPES (Oslo Papyri Electronic System) and its aims were first to make
 
all the published papyri (around 280 out of a total of 2272) available, catalogued and imaged, on
 
the www, then to catalogue and image the rest of the papyri, making the catalogue available
 
on the web and keeping the images in a separate database that users may access on demand.
 
A further aim is to scan and make accessible the collection´s inventory list made by the late professor
 
Leiv Amundsen. So far only a few have been scanned and a password is required to access them.
 
OPES is connected to [[Advanced Papyrological Information System (APIS)]] and thus to Papyri.info [http://www.papyri.info].
