The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Digital Library
The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Digital Library contains rare books and art works related to Greek history, archaeology and culture which are made available online for the first time.

Items of special interest have been chosen from UCL Special Collections' Euclid and Flaxman collections and the Institute of Archaeology's excavation reports and site surveys, complemented by images of UCL Art Museum's Flaxman plasters.

You can browse or search the full collection via the collection microsite.

The materials in the ICS/JL collection have been kindly provided by the Institute of Classical Studies Library and Joint Library of the Hellenic and Roman Societies, where they may be consulted.

Further information on photographic orders and image reproduction for the Euclid, Flaxman or IoA collections is available from UCL Special Collections.

Information on reproduction of images of UCL Art Museum's Flaxman collection for publication or broadcast is available from UCL Art Museum.

The project is generously supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The Foundation has also supported the digitisation of Euclid editions at the British Library.
