Ancient Greece generally is understood to cover the period from the Greek Dark Ages (12th - 9th centuries B. C.) through the Classical and Hellenistic periods ending in 600 A. D. In the PHC Library catalog, you can search a variety of resources by title, author, keyword, or phrase, linking you to ebooks, print books in the on-campus collection, and journal articles from both general and subject specific databases. The more specific your search terms, the more specific the results will be. For our Distance Learning (DL) students, excerpts from print items held in the on campus library can be provided on request.
If you are accessing electronic resources from off-campus and are required to log in, use your student portal user name and password to gain access.

OED - The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) is a great place to start for general information if you are unfamiliar with a person, term, or event. If your professor assigns research topics that include terms like "Thermopylae," "Strabo," or any other term that you do not immediately recognize, try the OED.
