Contour integral representations for Riemann’s Zeta function and Dirichelet’s Eta (alternating Zeta) function are presented and investigated. These representations flow naturally from methods developed in the 1800’s, but somehow they do not appear in the standard reference summaries, textbooks or literature. Using these representations as a basis, alternate derivations of known series and integral representations for the Zeta and Eta function are obtained on a unified basis that differs from the textbook approach, and results are developed that appear to be new.
