Note on Greek books cataloged in Ambrosia

Books in Greek are catalogued in Ambrosia using Unicode Greek characters rather than in transliteration. A Greek font is needed to search and browse for these titles. All work-stations in the American School Libraries and the British School Library have Greek keyboards installed.

To toggle between fonts on these work-stations, use ALT SHIFT

Those using Ambrosia remotely must use whatever Greek keyboard they have installed on their local machine.

For information on finding and installing Greek fonts see the TLG Fonts Page

This page becomes the official Blegen News source

As of today this page replaces the old Blegen Library News page.
