CoHSL: Consortium of Hellenic Studies Librarians

Five librarians specializing in Hellenic Studies met at Princeton University in April 2004. At a second meeting at the Harvard University Center for Hellenic Studies the group had grown to include 10 members. From this informal gathering a somewhat more organized group has been created. The Consortium of Hellenic Studies Librarians (CoHSL) is a group of academic research librarians committed to building and maintaining research collections in Hellenic Studies.

The consortium seeks to foster and facilitate the sharing of information and cooperation among academic research institutions by supporting and coordinating efforts to collect, preserve, and disseminate their combined collections, in an effort to enhance the depth and scope of the collections and to facilitate access to them.

The information available on this site is intended not only for the use of CoHSL members, but for researchers who may have an interest in learning about resources in Hellenic Studies at academic research institutions.

There is no membership fee and the consortium is open to library subject specialists and scholars worldwide. If you wish to join the group, please contact any of the members of the CoHSL (see Member Institutions).

There have been four meetings of the CoHSL to date: In April 2004 at Princeton; in November 2004 at the Center for Hellenic Studies, Washington DC; and in February 2006 at Harvard. The latest meeting took place at the Gennadius Library in Athens, December 7-10, 2006. Please see Program: Modern Greek Resources Project Meeting and Karen Green's photo album from the meeting.
