THE LIBRARY OF THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY AT ATHENS

In 2010, the Foundation decided on the funding of the renovation of the Scientific Library of the Archaeological Society at Athens. In order for the Library to be renovated and also to create new space for its extension, construction works needed to take place so that the administration offices could be relocated to another floor inside the Society"s historical building. The extension of the Library is expected to be completed within the current year.

The Library was established in 1848 and today it is the only Greek archaeological Library that is of equal importance to others that exist in Europe. It comprises of books and periodicals relevant to studies on Greek archaeology and the History of Greece, Asia Minor, the Euxine Pontus, the Middle East and Northern Africa and Europe, where ancient Greek and Byzantine antiquities have been discovered. The Library is visited by Greek and foreign archaeologists, students, scholars and people with a general interest in this ancient culture science.

The main Library is housed on the second floor of the building while on the third floor one may find the section of books dedicated to Modern Greece. The Library"s catalogue has been digitized – with a grant from the National Bank of Greece – and can be found online.
