books on shelves with sarco


The archaeology library contains more than 20,000 volumes that are currently being catalogued. The library collections have a strong focus on the Ancient Near East, Ancient Egypt, Cyprus and to a lesser extent on the classical world. It features large antiquities, such as an ancient Egyptian coffin, a Greek vessel by the so-called Baltimore Painter, and a Roman bust. The Archaeology library is a non-lending research library that facilitates the research conducted by academic staff and undergraduate students from LMU.

It is currently not open to the public, but our goal is to accommodate visiting researchers in the near future.


The library is located in University Hall (room 3325). It is a research-only non-lending library, and access is limited to community members who have been granted keys (academic staff, and Classics and Archaeology majors). It is not open to the general public.
