Ancient Greek and Latin Texts Online

  • Packard Humanities Institute Classical Latin Texts Online

  • Perseus under PhiloLogic
    "The texts we make available on this site are practically all used by permission from the Perseus Project at Tufts University, the foremost Digital Library for the classical world, if not for the Humanities in general. You will here find just about the same texts as at the Tufts site, but the mechanism for browsing and searching them is a different one. It is PhiloLogic, a system that was especially developed for large textual databases by the ARTFL project at the University of Chicago. While the original Perseus site is an excellent tool for linear reading, by putting all kinds of resources on the same page while a user reads a passage, we were interested in leveraging the rich encoding for searching the texts, and for other tasks that are less about reading and more about research: corpus linguistics, above all."
  • Thesaurus Linguae Graecae from Electronic Resources for Classicists, by Maria C. Pantelia
    Abridged version of the TLG - free, open access
    "The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG®) is a research center at the University of California, Irvine. The TLG has collected and digitized the entire corpus of Ancient Greek and Byzantine literature. The full TLG corpus is open to institutions and individuals by subscription. The site provides open access to the TLG bibliographical materials, known as the Canon of Greek Authors and Works and the abridged version of the TLG with more than 100 authors and works available to browse or search."
