This guide is an entry to the library's resources in Classical Studies, both print and electronic. It includes links to databases to which we subscribe as well as links to high-quality sites on the Internet.
The library's print collection includes standard editions (Loeb, Oxford, Bude, and Teubner) of Greek and Latin authors as well as analyses and critical editions of these works. It also includes studies of classical civilization, ancient history, classical archaeology, and Greek and Roman architecture. Works written in all Western European languages are collected, though the emphasis is on those in English, French, German, and Italian.
The Special Collections Library has an outstanding collection of papyri which is ranked fifth in size in the western hemisphere. To support this collection, the library contains an extensive array of analyses and editions of both Greek and Egyptian papyri.
Also in the Special Collections Library are Greek and Latin manuscripts, some of which are classical texts. With 98 Greek manuscripts, the Duke collection is among the largest in the hemisphere. There are also 159 Latin manuscripts.
