About the Department
The Institute of Classical Studies was founded as a post-graduate Institute of the University of London in 1953, and now forms part of the School of Advanced Study; its Library is housed and administered as a single unit with the Joint Library of the Hellenic and Roman Societies (established in 1879 and 1910 respectively).

The Institute library is responsible for the “primary” collection of reference material, including dictionaries, corpora, excavation reports, standard texts of ancient authors, and certain periodicals, together with specialist electronic resources; the library of the Societies for the “secondary” collection of loanable books and periodicals. The Library’s integrated collection now holds over 130,000 monographs and 22,000 bound periodicals, with c.700 current periodical titles, the whole thereby forming an interdisciplinary tool serving all aspects of classical research. For further information, please refer to the Library’s website at: http://library.ics.sas.ac.uk/
