Main Library

At the largest school library in Greece, we offer junior high and high school students all the necessary tools to do research projects and deepen their knowledge.

Athens College Library began its operation in the 1930s within the spaces of Benaki Hall.  Its collection was organized more systematically in the 1950s.  Since 1964, it is housed in its own 1300 m2 building on the Psychico campus, a structure designed by architect and Athens College alumnus, Pavlos Mylonas.

Opening Hours:  Monday-Friday 08.15-17.00, Saturday 11:00-16:00

During holidays and summer break, operating hours are modified.

 

At the Athens College Library, we have:

  • 70,000 volumes in Greek and English
  • subscriptions to electronic databases
  • 200 current titles of printed and digital journals/magazines and newspapers
  • a rich selection of audiovisual materials
  • 140 computers and laptops
  • the D-Space institutional repository in order to collect, organize, promote, and maintain materials produced at the College

 

International Museum Day 2018

International Museum Day 2018

In its effort to highlight the role of museums in modern society, in 1977, the International Committee of Museums (ICOM) established May 18th as International Museum Day.

May 18th is dedicated each year to a specific topic relating to museums and to the protection of cultural heritage.

Museums today hold a pivotal role in relationships that are created through the internet, while at the same time are the focus of many different social networks. The continuous expansion of the public sector, which is the standing objective of museums, requires enhanced interconnection of museums with one another, with other institutions/agencies and with the public.  New approaches are also needed in order to disseminate the museum experience on social networks (in their digital or analogue format).

We remind you that the objective of International Museum Day, established in 1977, was to raise awareness of the fact that Museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples.
