Welcome to the premier Hellenic Collection in the western United States and one of the largest of its kind in the country.

The Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection in the University Library at California State University, Sacramento is an extensive resource for research and study for the campus and Sacramento regional communities, as well as scholars and researchers nationally and internationally. With its focus on the Hellenic world, the Collection contains early through contemporary materials across the social sciences and humanities relating to Greece, its neighboring countries, and the surrounding region. There is a broad representation of languages in the Collection, with a rich assortment of primary source materials.

The Collection, under the direction of Curator George I. Paganelis, opened on September 2, 2003, and consists of a large circulating book collection, journal holdings, electronic resources, non-print media materials, rare books, archival materials, art and artifacts. 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. Adjacent to the main Collection Room are a Reference Room and a multipurpose classroom dedicated in honor of retired California State Senator Nicholas C. Petris in 2005. Rare and archival materials from the Collection are located in the Department of Special Collections and University Archives and media materials in the Library Media Center.
