A Companion to Archaic Greece Online

A Companion to Archaic Greece Online

A systematic survey of archaic Greek society and culture which introduces the reader to a wide range of new approaches to the period.

  • The first comprehensive and accessible survey of developments in the study of archaic Greece
  • Places Greek society of c.750-480 BCE in its chronological and geographical context
  • Gives equal emphasis to established topics such as tyranny and political reform and newer subjects like gender and ethnicity
  • Combines accounts of historical developments with regional surveys of archaeological evidence and in-depth treatments of selected themes
  • Explores the impact of Eastern and other non-Greek cultures in the development of Greece
  • Uses archaeological and literary evidence to reconstruct broad patterns of social and cultural development

Die Neue Overbeck

Since it was first published in Leipzig in 1868, Johannes Overbeck’s Ancient Literary Sources for the History of the Visual Arts of the Greeks has been a standard work, not just for all classical disciplines, but also for art history and related studies. This completely revised new edition in five volumes goes far beyond a simple revision and addition of new sources; it also takes into account the results of archaeological research since Overbeck, as well as changes in the knowledge and needs of future users of the handbook.

New Loan Periods for Faculty

Beginning June 2014, books checked out to faculty are now loaned for six months.

As long as the item isn’t requested by another patron, faculty may renew items. Renewals can be done online by using “My OskiCat” before the book is due. Faculty can renew the book several times for a total loan period of four years.

The Library has changed these loan periods with a goal of creating more consistent practices that bridge all our campus libraries.  The six month loan period for faculty is a compromise between the former practices of one month loans in the science libraries, and twelve month loans in the social science and humanities libraries.
