Hours and Location
The papyrus collection is located in room 807 of the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library. We are generally open weekdays during normal business hours. Access to the papyrology library can also be arranged through the main circulation desk or through Special Collections (on the 7th floor).
Visiting the Collection
If you are planning a visit, please see the contact page for information on finding the library, including links to maps and directions.
The papyrology library is open to the public, but we do have a non-lending policy. Access to the papyrus collection is restricted to researchers and students. Guided tours of the collection and demonstrations of our equipment may be given from time to time upon request.
For visitors interested in seeing the papyri, we now always have at least one piece on display in The Parsons Papyrology Exhibit Case, located in the Audubon Room on the first floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library. In addition, several exhibits containing papyri are typically on display throughout the year, both in the Audubon Room and the other museums on campus. Check here for a current listing of all papyri on display.
