Its strengths include a large number of excavation reports from the main Greek and Roman sites (e.g. Delphi, Samos, Delos, Olympia and Pompeii) and many important series such as: Corpus vasorum antiquorum (CVA) and Lexicon iconographicum mythologiae classicae. A guide to the Garside classification scheme is available.
