Ancient & Medieval Studies Reading Room


The Ancient and Medieval Studies Reading Room provides researchers with an extensive selection of primary texts as well as commentaries, concordances and reference works useful in study of these texts. The collection is not comprehensive. The research collections supporting these fields remain primarily in the Butler Stacks, but every effort is made to provide a reading room environment that is conducive to work in these fields.

In the literature of Classical Antiquity an effort has been made to include the collected works of of the most significant authors. Individual editions of all Classical authors have also been included, where faculty have designated such editions to be vital for research. For the Middle Ages editions of the works of individual authors have, for the most part, not been included for reasons of space.

The Reading Room does not contain periodicals, which continue to be located in the Periodical and Microform Reading Room on the fourth floor of Butler Library, and in the Butler Stacks.

If you have a question regarding the Reading Room or would like to suggest that something be acquired for the room, please e-mail the Ancient & Medieval History and Religion Librarian.
