Find Books

Books and Ebooks via MultiSearch

The Library Catalogue lists books held in the Library's collection. Hints for searching the library catalogue:

  • Use Keyword or Title searches to find additional material
  • Use the Browse Alphabetically: By Author search (e.g., Thucydides) to find primary sources
  • Note that the Library Catalogue does not use abbreviated book titles. If your reading list uses abbreviation like CAH, you will need to type 'Cambridge Ancient History' in full
  • Click the Subject Headings of useful titles to find books on related subjects. Some relevant subject headings are:
  • Browse the library shelves in the classification sequences for Greek History.
  • NB. Since 2024 the library catalogue only includes books and ebooks purchased by UC Library. It omits hundreds of thousands of ebook titles ‘leased’ through library subscriptions, which are listed on MultiSearch. The library catalogue has more functional search and sorting capabilities than MultiSearch, all the same.
