Here are the results of the search:

When you find a book that you like, check that it is IN and record the CALL NUMBER to find it in the library (see image below).

Note the subject list on the left. Click 'view more' to see what aspects of Greece and Rome are covered within all the books.

Also note that there are 2,575 items at U of T libraries - 307 are at UTSC and 314 are e-books. To ONLY see books at UTSC, click on "UofT at Scarborough".

On the next screen, you will be asked to enter your barcode number and PIN. Choose intercampus delivery, select Scarborough, and enter an email address that you check frequently - you'll get an email when the book arrives.
