Classics: Find Books

Call Numbers

Call numbers tell you where a book is shelved. In the Francis A. Drexel Library, we use Library of Congress Classification which groups titles by subject matter.

Classics is an interdisciplinary field, so there is no one area to browse and find all relevant sources. The following call number ranges will help you get started. Click on the links for more details:

PA: Greek and Latin languages and literature
DE: The ancient Mediterranean world
DF1-DF289: Ancient Greece
DG11-DG365: Ancient Rome
CC: Archaeology

See also the following call numbers for books on Ancient and Classical fine arts:

N5320-5899: Art
NA210-340: Architecture
NB69-169: Sculpture
NC55-69: Drawing
ND70-130: Painting
NK630-685: Decorative and Applied Arts

Please note that many art books are found on the Oversize book shelves.
