Collections support teaching and research programs through the doctoral level in the Classics Department and cohort Departments in the languages, literature, archaeology, philosophy, architecture and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome.  English, Ancient Greek and Latin are the primary languages of selection, with translations, commentaries and secondary literature also routinely collected in German, French, and Italian.   Other languages are covered for high- or repeat-demand items or with additional Global Studies funds where needed.   Emphasis is on the Classical era of ancient Greece and Rome, extending to reception studies and in collaboration with the Art History and History librarian some coverage of the Byzantine era.  Modern (Greek) is purchased on repeat demand.

The collection focuses on monographs and peer-reviewed journals both in print and e- as appropriate and available, and reference works.  Primary texts and commentaries across languages in multiple formats are essential.  Proceedings of conferences and festschrift are also acquired.
