About the Library

The Center for Hellenic Studies Library collection focuses upon and supports research in all areas of ancient Hellenic civilization. The collection includes literature (archaic, classical, Hellenistic and early imperial), history, philosophy, religion, art, archaeology, architecture, epigraphy, papyrology, medicine, mathematics, science and numismatics. Collections in Latin Literature and Roman Studies are less complete, but very useful for comparative purposes and interdisciplinary projects.
