Joint Library of the Roman & Hellenic Societies (Claire Davenport)

The Library is maintained jointly with the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies and in association with the Institute of Classical Studies (University of London).

It contains over 130,000 volumes, 675 periodicals and 6,700 slides and has an international reputation as one of the world’s foremost Classics lending libraries.

Members resident in or visiting the UK may borrow the Societies' books and slides in person or by post. Books belonging to the ICS may be consulted, but not borrowed.

Members of the Society will be issued with a Library Card on their first visit.

Support the Library

The Hellenic and Roman Societies have created, in a process that goes back over a century, one of a handful of great Classics libraries in the world. We ask you now to consider a contribution towards its development over the next century and more. Its riches are immediately available on open access; about 20% of its accessions are in no other UK library; and it is one of the few libraries in the UK that every year welcomes a trainee beginning a career as a Classics Librarian.

Please help us to maintain and develop this wonderful resource in a period of growing public austerity.
