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.  Please also note that our catalogues do not properly support searches in the Greek alphabet; readers should conduct all searches for Greek material with the use of standard transliteration (further information here).
