The Library is sorry to report that we are currently experiencing problems with off-site access to JSTOR. This is under investigation and we will update this message when we have more information
Please note that from 1st May 2013, all payments for Joint Library business (for photocopies / postage / sales of books from our duplicate book sale shelves / donations and fines) are to be paid into a new account "The Roman Society - Joint Library". Anyone who has a old style invoice or payment request slip which requests payment to The Hellenic Society - please disregard this and pay the new account. Due to the charges imposed with credit / debit card payments, we can only accept card payments for amounts of £10.00 and over.
By registering your email address to the New Books List you will receive an monthly announcement giving details of the books recently acquired by the library arranged by subject categories.
Until new photocopies are obtained later in 2013 (which will allow scanning as well as copying) as an interim measure, Library staff will offer a scanning service for images on Wednesdays between 11.30 - 12.30 and between 2.30 - 3.30 pm at a cost of 50p per image. This is intended for students who need to include images in their dissertations. Academic staff who require images for publication are asked to enquire about the Library's photographic service.
