CNERS Graduate Reading Room

The Graduate Reading Room holds a collection of monographs, reference materials, serials, and other items.  It includes important reference works such as epigraphic collections, standard text series such as the Loeb Classical Library, and many seminal writers.  The Reading Room also provides desks and study space for our graduate students. 


Work is currently underway to create a complete online catalogue using LibraryThing. This easy to use platform will provide better access to the valuable resources in the collection.  All items on the reading room shelves are labeled and organized by Library of Congress call numbers (the same system as the main UBC Library).  The catalog lists the number in the LC Classification field.  To make the numbers more visible, the LC number is also repeated in the tags.
