Pyxida is organized in three collections:
The extensive scientific, educational and research work produced by the Athens University of Economics and Business is gathered in the "Academic Repository". Using advanced electronic services and certified processes for the automated deposit of digital material, the AUEB "Academic Repository" aims to offer to the academic and broader communities the distinguished scientific and research knowledge that is produced at the University. Users can search these collections for post-graduate dissertations and doctoral theses, as well as other research papers and material produced at AUEB.
Collections on Economic and Social Sciences
Both old and rare collections are stored in the "Digital Collections of the Economic and Social Sciences" - these collections are also in the library in printed format. These collections include old textbooks and teaching manuals from the first decades of the twentieth century when AUEB was known as The School of Economics and Business. There are also rare monographs which were acquired by the AUEB Library, the oldest academic economic library in Greece. Additionally, the digital collections include the "Economic and Social Sciences Archive" published by Professor D.Kalitsounakis. This journal has recognized historical value and is comprised of several scientific articles with economic and social content from the fifty-year period of 1921 - 1971.
AUEB Historical Archive
Yearbooks, study guides and other information pamphlets and publications published by the Athens University of Economics and Business are stored in the "AUEB Historical Archive". The Historical Archive includes a part of the extensive archival and photographic material of the University. This material documents the evolution of the University and its various scientific activities during the first 100 years of its history. In addition, it preserves the accumulated wealth of those 100 years, as the University now stands firmly in the 21st century.
