Institute of Archaeology Library


The UCL Institute of Archaeology Library was founded in 1937 to support teaching and research at the new Institute of Archaeology and has subsequently gained an international reputation as one of the finest archaeological collections in the world. It supports the taught programmes offered by the Institute and provides research material on a wide variety of topics covering all aspects of archaeology, museum studies and cultural heritage. The current library also contains the Yates Classical Archaeology library and the prestigious Edwards Egyptology library.

The Institute Library is now part of UCL Library Services. Related collections of interest are to be found in the Main Library (Ancient History, Jewish Studies, Latin American History, History and Classics) and in the DMS Watson (Science Library) (Anthropology, History of Science and Geography).

Please see our UCL Library Services' web pages for information on our opening hours and a quick guide to the library (including information on disabled access).
