One of the great advantages of being in Athens at the American School are the two libraries -- the Gennadius Library and the Blegen. Both offer one of a kind collections and as closed stacks libraries almost total access to their material. As an added advantage of my position, I have an office in the Blegen library allowing me access to the stacks 24 hours a day. (I have found, however, that attempting to be in the library 24 hours, or even much over 12 hours a day, does little for my productivity!).
What this post is really about is this: http://blegen.blogspot.com/. The Blegen librarian Charles Jones has a blog that tracks the new books arriving at the Blegen. The new book shelf here is a great way to keep informed on what is going on the field and now you can browse it from the comfort of your own computer.
