    The Library

    The E.L.I.A. Library contains at present more than 100,000 volumes of books, magazines, almanacs and newspapers from the 19th century onwards and is considered as one of the most important - and in some subjects one of the most complete - libraries in the country.

  • In 19th century Greek publications it ranks fourth in the world.
  • In Greek almanacs of the 19th and 20th centuries it possibly possesses the most complete collection around the globe.
  • It has the third largest collection of newspapers and magazines in Greece after the Library of Parliament and the National Library, with a notable series of unique illegal press publications from the German Occupation and the Resistance.
  • It has concentrated approximately 70% of the total publishing output of Greek books printed in Egypt.


  • ELIA, in an effort to reorganize the collections of its library, has installed the “Advance” software, aiming at optimum processing and handling of the material, as well as to prompt services to researchers. This project has encompassed a significant part of the collection of 20th century books and periodicals, while all library collections are scheduled to be included in it, so that in future these will be accessible on the Internet through the “Advance” catalogue.
