John Miller Burnam Classics Library

illuminated medieval manuscript

UC Classicists: While the physical library is closed, you will unfortunately not be able to check references in the printed collections. Therefore, you may want to use this time to read the books you have checked out (as you now know, any fines accrued during the closure of the library will be excused!) and focus on writing, noting references on which to follow up after the library reopens. A good exercise during this time could also be to work on bibliography by searching l'Année Philologique in tandem with the UC Library Catalog (WorldCat or LibWeb for non-UC items), so that you have a bibliography ready to check when regaining access to the library's physical stacks. Also, know that there is a large number of journals, books, ancient texts, editions, etc., available online (see below and see also the items under "Databases," "Language Dictionaries," and "Bibliographies and Study Guides," there esp. "Classical Studies: Sources" and "Useful Links," further down on this page). I am always happy to help you find sources, assist with research questions, give advice on texts and editions, read drafts of papers and dissertations, and anything else with which you would like help. During my home office hours, Tuesdays 10-11 am and Thursdays 2-4 pm, you can Chat with me live via MS Teams to which you all have access. If you have questions about Teams, see: https://kb.uc.edu/KBArticles/MicrosoftTeams-FAQs.aspx . You can try "chatting" with me also at other times when I am often at my computer. Of course, you can always reach me via email lindaura@ucmail.uc.edu. For general library questions, you can also Ask the Libraries, a chat service managed by UCL staff and students 12-3 pm, M-F.
