Library Loan The Bonn Center for Dependency and Slavery Studies is delighted to announce that we have received a very exciting long-term loan from the Academy of Science and Literature in Mainz.

The Bonn Center for Dependency and Slavery Studies is delighted to announce that we have received a very exciting long-term loan from the Academy of Science and Literature in Mainz: the BCDSS will host the library collected by the “Forschungen zur Antiken Sklaverei” project (Studies in Ancient Slavery), which came to an end in 2012.

One of its former directors, Heinz Heinen, gave his name to our Fellowship program. We feel even more closely connected now. 

We are immensely pleased to make this invaluable collection – more than 3000 monographs and edited volumes, 12,000 papers and articles, as well as 250 especially produced translations from Russian and other Eastern European languages – available to the members of the BCDSS and to the wider scholarly world.

We will keep you updated on the terms of use and availability over the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned! And if in the meantime you want to sneak a peek at the collection in its new home at the BCDSS Heussallee office, just come by, or follow us on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
