The Center maintains an excellent library of books on epigraphy and palaeography as well as an extensive collection of photographs and squeezes (accurate paper impressions of inscriptions) of Greek and Latin inscriptions and microfilms of Latin manuscripts. The Center houses a number of special collections including Arthur and Joyce Gordon's photographs and squeezes of Latin inscriptions, J.K. Evans's photo archive of Latin inscriptions from northern Italy, J.M.R. Cormack's papers, photographs and squeezes of inscriptions from Macedonia, Donald Laing's squeezes of and papers on Athenian naval decrees and shipping, and the offprint collections of Sterling Dow, A.G. Woodhead, Donald Laing, Henry Robinson and Benjamin Meritt. The Center is also home to the Virginia Brown Collection, which contains her library, her offprints, photographs, papers and notes on manuscripts and palaeography in general and on Beneventan script in particular.
The Center is a long-time participant in a project to create a comprehensive database of Greek epigraphical texts, in cooperation with colleagues at Cornell University and with funding and technical support from the Packard Humanities Institute. The Center has contributed material to a searchable web-based database. The project at the Center is directed by Philip Forsythe.
The Center offers several short-term fellowships for those pursuing post-doctoral research in Greek and Latin epigraphy and Latin palaeography.
