Classics Library

Access Policy

A View of the Classics LibraryThe Classics Library and its collections are primarily intended to support the study of Greco-Roman antiquity by Yale faculty and students. Access to the Classics Library premises  is restricted to current Yale students, faculty, and staff at all times. Library users must be prepared to show a current Yale ID on request. Visiting scholars associated with another academic or cultural institution may apply to the Classics Librarian for temporary access privileges. Passes issued by the Sterling Memorial Library or other Yale Libraries do not provide access to the Classics Library.

All Classics Library materials are non-circulating. Books may be stored temporarily at assigned carrels if a “book marker” is filled out and left in the book’s original shelf position. Reserves, reference books, and journals may not be kept at a carrel.

University regulations stipulate that attempts to remove Library materials without authorization may result in the suspension of library privileges, fines, and/or suspension or dismissal from the University.

Briefcases, bags, and other belongings of all Classics Library users may be subject to inspection at any time.

Access to electronic resources is limited to currently employed faculty and staff and currently enrolled students of Yale University, and we are unable to provide remote access to non-Yale users.

Only beverages in spill-proof containers are allowed in the Classics Library. Food is prohibited.

The Classics Library is not responsible for loss or damage of personal items or books from other libraries. We strongly recommend you do not leave items of value unattended.
