The University Library's physical and electronic holdings are served by a number of catalogues.  These are listed below.  Please note that while most records for Modern Greek material contain diacritics, with a macron used to differentiate the e and o vowel pairs ε/η and ο/ω in transliteration, readers do not need to include diacritics when performing searches.

Newton
- contains catalogue records for physical books and periodicals and also ejournals
- is separated into clusters of catalogues to be searched individually (the link above goes into the University Library's cluster), including a cluster for Cambridge PhD theses
- general help page here
- Searches in the Greek alphabet do not work; readers much conduct searches in transliteration (further information here).

iDiscover
- contains catalogue records for physical books and periodicals and also ebooks and ejournals
- provides a single union catalogue for physical items in libraries across Cambridge
- searches subscribed eresources including ebooks, journals and databases, open access items in the University’s institutional repository and the electronic legal deposit collection
- general help page here
- always log in (top right-hand corner) when using iDiscover in order to see full results.
- iDiscover does support searches in Greek, bringing results for material whose catalogue records feature Greek script.  Note that the transliteration used for Greek items within the electronic resources covered by iDiscover is not controlled by the Library, so trying a variety of transliterated versions of a term (eg ιστορικη as historike / istorike) is advisable
