Goetz Library

Goetz Library

The Goetz Library, located in MFAC 320, houses a study/research collection of ca. 8,000 non-circulating volumes, along with study spaces for ca. 15 faculty/students, two computer work stations, and a shelf for reserved readings for department courses. The library can be used by department faculty, graduate students, undergraduate majors, and other individuals who apply to the department Chair for permission. The collection includes most of the standard reference works in Classics, an extensive collection of Greek and Latin texts and commentaries, less extensive holdings in Classical literature, ancient history, and Classical archaeology, and an eclectic assortment of Classical journals. The computers at the two workstations are connected to the UB computer network, permitting users to search the full complement of bibliographical and research resources available to the UB community on the web. A wireless router also allows library users to employ their own laptop computers to connect to the web. In 2005 the UB School of Informatics produced an electronic catalogue of the collection using the Open-Source Koha Automation software system. This allows faculty and students to search the collection from the two work stations in the library and from remote locations both on and off the UB campus. The library regularly serves as a venue for departmental events, such as guest lectures and thesis colloquia.
