Books About Classics: How to Find Them __________

Recent Books  

Boston University Libraries Search (BULS) and BU Worldcat Discovery let you search for books at BU and throughout the world.  Type keywords in the search boxes and use the limiters to further define your topic. Try to be specific. When looking for books about an ancient author, type in the author's name rather than typing in "tragedy."  

Remember to "Sign In" with your BU login. Our online database subscriptions are available only to BU faculty, students, and staff. Signing in also lets you request unavailable books directly from BULS by clicking a Request button (see below). 

eBooks are in the BULS database.  You also can search for them directly by title if you know it or by keywords as in ProQuest Ebook Central.

Here is a sample search and "Sign In" limited to books about Sophocles AND Antigone.
