Harvard: Digital library for Greek and Latin literature

The Harvard University Press has announced the forthcoming launch in Fall 2014, of the Digital Loeb Classical Library®. More than 520 volumes of Latin, Greek, and English texts will be available online at the Harvard’s Loeb Classical Library® in a modern and elegant interface, allowing readers to browse, search, bookmark, annotate, and share content with ease. This vital, interconnected virtual resource will feature state-of-the-art search capabilities in English, Ancient Greek, and Latin.

Epic and lyric poetry, tragedy and comedy, history, travel, philosophy, and oratory, the great medical writers and mathematicians, writtings of Church Fathers, in short, our entire Greek and Latin Classical heritage is represented here with up-to-date texts and accurate English translations.

Founded by James Loeb in 1911, the mission of Loeb Classical Library® has always been to make Classical Greek and Latin literature accessible to the broadest range of readers. The digital Loeb Classical Library extends this mission into the twenty-first century. Harvard University Press is honored to renew James Loeb’s vision of accessibility, and presents an interconnected, fully searchable, perpetually growing, virtual library of all that is important in Greek and Latin literature.
