This bibliography is a running list of publications relevant to the themes of the Collectors, Curators and Cataloguers Workshop. It represents both research published by workshop speakers, and by the women whose histories the workshop will explore. We envision that this list will grow to cover women not represented in the workshop.

Contact Amara Thornton (Research Officer, Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology) to suggest further additions to this list.
