Please note, the Classical Studies bibliography, L'Année philologique, changed suppliers in January 2018, and will be provided by Brepols from now on.
We have switched our links to the new site. The old site will still be available until September 2018, but we would encourage you to start using the new site as soon as possible, as the old site will no longer be updated or supported.
The new version contains the same content, and has similar search options to the old version. One major enhancement is that you should now be able to link directly to the full text of online journal articles (where we have access to them): look for 'External links' at the bottom of any record you find.
When searching for modern authors, simply type the author's name in the 'author' box. When searching for ancient authors (e.g. Ovid) or ancient texts, type the name in the 'ancient author and text' box. You can then select the correct form of the author or text name from the drop-down list which appears on screen.
Choose advanced search for the full range of search options, and click the question mark symbol next to any search field to get more search tips.
The Great North Museum: Hancock Library is on the second floor of the museum. It houses several collections, including the Cowen Library, which contains around 9,000 books and journals relating to archaeology, ancient history and classics, and the Library of the Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle upon Tyne, which specialises in local history and heritage.
Newcastle University members may borrow from the Cowen Library. Both collections are catalogued on Library Search.
As well as 'traditional' academic resources, social media is, increasingly, an excellent way of keeping up to date with your subject area. You really can't afford to ignore it! Not convinced? Check out our selection of social media links for History or Archaeology/Classics.
If you've got any recommendations you think we should add, just let us know.
This collection was built up by Emeritus Professor Brian Shefton, who died in 2012, and who was an expert on Greek and Etruscan archaeology. It is shelved in its own section on level four of the Robinson Library, starting with the number 913.38. It contains over 2,500 books, and new additions are made regularly. There is also a separate Shefton Collection of artefacts in the Great North Museum: Hancock.
