Perseus Digital Library

Description

Perseus focuses upon the Greco-Roman world, and offers full-text literature in original languages and in English translation, as well as images of art and archaeology. Other disciplines--early modern English, the American Civil War, the history and topography of London, the history of mechanics, automatic identification and glossing of technical language in scientific documents, customized reading support for Arabic language, and other projects--allow Perseus to maintain a broader focus and to demonstrate the commonalities between Classics and other disciplines in the humanities and beyond. Includes many reference works, such as 'The Princeton Encyclopedia of Classical Sites,' 'A Homeric Dictionary' (Autenrieth), 'A Greek Grammar for Colleges' (Smyth), and many commentaries on ancient authors and their texts.

Library of Latin Texts - Series B

Alternative Titles
Library of Latin Texts - Series B (LLT-B)
CETEDOC Library of Christian Latin Texts
CLCLT
Brepolis
Description

Supplement to LLT-A. With an initial production of almost 7 million words and a projected growth of 4-5 million words annually, the LLT-B will develop at a faster pace than the LLT-A. In order to make this possible, the material which makes up the LLT-B is taken directly from existing editions (whereas the LLT-A is the product of intensive research work). The Library of Latin Texts – Series B gathers Latin texts of all genres and all periods. The data will therefore be very diverse, and will include genres as varied as chronicles, medieval saints’ lives and travel narratives, legal texts, and theological, philosophical and scientific treatises from the early-modern period. Above all, the emphasis will be on the online availability of large corpora of texts.
