About the Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection

For more information about the Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection, visit the Collection's Web site; for an in-depth profile, see my article "The Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection at California State University, Sacramento: A Beacon of Hellenism in the Western United States," Journal of Modern Greek Studies 26:1 (2008) 19-27.


With the exception of the rare and media materials, the Collection is housed in a separate, named area on the third floor of the University Library and is accessible the same hours as the main library building. Rare and archival materials are located in the Department of Special Collections and University Archives, which has more limited hours, and media materials can be found either in the User Services Department (audiovisual) or on the second floor (microforms).


Materials in the Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection have several designated locations (click on thumbnail images for larger maps):
