RECLASSIFICATION PROJECT

Starting September 2017, ASCSA's libraries (Blegen, Gennadius and the Wiener Laboratory) are undergoing a major reclassification project for their collections following the Library of Congress system of call numbers.

In order for the work to be completed most efficiently and with the least inconvenience to our users, libraries closure is inevitable. At this point, according to the proposed timetable, the libraries will not be accessible to any users during the Spring semester of 2019 (January to June).

For more information on the project please see: http://www.ascsa.edu.gr/index.php/about/ascsa-reclassification-project
