The libraries provide support for a broad range of undergraduate instruction and scholarly research in all aspects of the cultures of ancient Greece and Rome. Green Library is the main location for these collections, except for ancient art and archaeology, which are collected primarily in the Art Library. Most collections of, and publications on, ancient art and archaeology, including the corpora of Greek vases, excavation reports for major sites, and the like can be found there. Green Library holds runs of the main journals and monographic series in the classics, together with the main collections of primary texts and secondary literature in ancient history, philosophy, science, literature and classical philology, and other areas. Together the libraries aim to establish complete holdings of primary texts in all significant editions and to collect in depth the secondary literature relevant to the research interests of faculty and graduate students. The Bibliographer welcomes suggestions of books or other material for purchase.

The Raubitschek Room, named in honor of the late professor emeritus Antony E. Raubitschek, is located in Room 351, Green Library East. It brings together the primary texts of Greek and Latin epigraphy and papyrology, together with the necessary secondary and reference literature. This collection does not circulate.

The Department of Special Collections is home to a large body of early printed books relevant to the history of classics as a discipline and to the reception of ancient texts in modern Europe. The department has extensive holdings of first and early editions of classical texts published by Aldus, the Estienne family, Froben, and other Renaissance printers and illustrated editions of all eras; it also collects heavily in the early secondary literature of the classics.
