Audio Visual Collection

The Library holds a small selection of audio and video cassettes, CDs, and DVDs, but does not have listening, recording, or viewing facilities. However, cassettes of both varieties are available for loan to members of the Hellenic and Roman Societies for a period of one month. Items are held in the Library Office and may be requested from the Library staff. Click here for contact details.

The Library's selection of audio-visual material is quite small compared to what is available. Dr. Janice Siegel has edited a comprehensive online database of Audio-visual resources for Classics: an invaluable search tool.
