Byzantine and Modern Greece Studies: The Modern Greek Collection in the John Miller Burnam Classical Library at
the University of Cincinnati contains valuable research materials in the field of Byzantine and Modern Greece Studies.
Considered to be one of the finest collections in this field in the United States, it is also one of the largest—over 55,000
volumes. Major collection efforts began in the early 1930s, due to the work of Professor Carl Blegen and the generosity
of William and Louise Taft Semple. We continue to collect research materials internationally without regard to language
or country of publication, although many of these titles are Greek publications.
Chinese art. Collections are not large, but are significant because they are not widely available.
Classical Studies: Collection efforts focus comprehensively on all aspects of the ancient Greek and Roman world,
including the Bronze Age in the Eastern Mediterranean region. Library materials, in print and other formats, cover
history, archaeology, language and literature, art, numismatics, science and technology, papyrology, epigraphy, and
patristics. The Classics Library offers extensive coverage in materials on Byzantine and Modern Greece and strong
coverage in titles on Egypt and the Ancient Near East and on paleography.
Earth Sciences: depth in hydrocarbons, structure-tectonics, paleontology, sedimentology.
