  • Perseus Advanced Search with PhiloLogic
    Largely from the Perseus corpus, “The Greek and Latin texts are richly encoded for content rather than form (e.g., not page breaks, initials, and indents, but speaker information, metrical information, and milestones). The Perseus site is further enriched by intricate linking mechanisms among texts (resulting in more than 30 million links).”

  • Library of Humanistic Texts (University of Birmingham, UK, Philological Museum at the Shakespeare Institute)
    Full-text collection of critical editions (frequently with translations) of a large number of 16th and 17th century texts. It is created and maintained by Dana F. Sutton, University of California, Irvine. 
  • Bibliography of Neo-Latin Texts on the Web (University of Birmingham, UK, Philological Museum at the Shakespeare Institute)

  • Logeion provides simultaneous lookup of entries for ancient Greek & Latin words in the many reference works that make up the Perseus Classical collection.  A simple word look-up is supplemented by information based on corpus data in the right side bar, as well as references to chapters in standard textbooks.  Standard works include historic versions of Liddell-Scott and Lewis & Short.
