Audio Visual Resources

The Library holds a small selection of audio and video cassettes, CDs, and DVDs, but does not have listening, recording, or viewing facilities. However, items are available for loan to members of the Hellenic and Roman Societies for a period of one month. The collection is held in the Library Office and may be requested from the Library desk or by sending an email to iclass.enquiries@london.ac.uk

Our selection of audio-visual material is small compared to what is available. An online database of Audio-visual resources for Classics has been created by Dr Janice Siegel - but note that this is no longer maintained.
