IN the new Sharpe Gallery only the choicest pieces of the Museum’s extensive classical collections are on public view. The rest are installed in the Classical Study Rooms, one of which is shown on Plate XII. The rooms are open to any credited individuals whose interest leads them beyond the collections in the galleries, and are being put to immediate use by the graduate students of the Department of Archaeology at Bryn Mawr who meet there for their seminars. It is believed that by thus separating study material from that of more general interest the collections will prove both more stimulating and comprehensible to the general public, and more convenient for the specialist.
