The CCANESA reading room

The CCANESA reading room

The CCANESA library consists of the combined collections of the Department of Classics and Ancient History, the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens and the Near Eastern Archaeology Foundation. Library holdings include classical literature (Greek and Latin), and works on Classical, Near Eastern and Egyptian archaeology and history. The in-progress catalogue is available for users of the Centre.

Currently, the library catalogue is divided into three parts, as cataloguing and amalgamation of the libraries of the CCANESA constituents is in process. The library is being catalogued using Endnote.

If you wish to download the CCANESA Classics and Ancient History library catalogue, it is available through Google Docs. You will need to open a Google account which is free. The Classics and Ancient History catalogue is available at this link: Classics and Ancient History catalogue.

The Classics and Ancient History library catalogue is also available online via myendnoteweb. If you would like to search the online catalogue, please email Bernadette McCall or to request access. We will then invite you to join the CCANESA Classics and Ancient History library group. Please note that in order to access the catalogue online you will need to set-up a free myendnoteweb account.

Details on how to access the AAIA catalogue online is available at the following link AAIA Library.

The NEAF catalogue will be available in due course.

The catalogues available on-line will be updated periodically. If you cannot find a publication, and wish to know if we have it, please contact us at
