Classics*: Books & eBooks

Guide to finding materials on Classical Studies

Print Materials in USC Libraries

Books and print journals on Classics are in a variety of locations.  In Doheny Memorial Library they will be found in the Doheny Stacks.  In addition, a small collection of non-circulating materials is housed in the Classics Section of Reference, in the Periodicals Reading Room on the main floor.

Materials on ancient philosophy are in the Hoose Library of Philosophy.

Many older materials are kept in our off-campus facility, the Grand Avenue Library, and must be paged through the Libraries' online catalog, Homer.
Leavey Library
also has books on classical studies.

Use one of the boxes at left to do a quick keyword or advanced search in Homer, which will tell you in what library the item is available.
