    Electronic Resources for Classicists: The Second Generation
    The first version of this survey was published in the February 1994 issue of the New England Classical Journal. [NECJ XXI.3 (1993-94) 117-21]. One year later the number of new Web sites and resources had grown so much that a revision of the list was necessary. The second survey was published in the February 1995 issue of the same journal (NECJ XXII.3 (February 1995). Soon afterwards an electronic version of the list was made available via the UPenn server--thanks to Professor James O' Donnell. In the summer of 1995 the survey was converted to HTML format with links to the various resources and made available via the Classics WWW server at the University of New Hampshire. In 1996 "Electronic Resources for Classicicts" and its author moved to the University of California, Irvine, to a server maintained by the TLG Project.

    GreekKeys for Macintosh is a product providing easy keyboard input and specialized fonts for scholars of ancient (polytonic) Greek. First produced in 1984, GreekKeys has long provided a widely-used custom encoding for polytonic Greek, but now also supports and advocates Unicode as the proper standard for polytonic Greek in the future. GreekKeys is owned and distributed by the American Philological Association, a non-profit professional organization of North American classical scholars. GreekKeys is currently maintained and revised by Donald Mastronarde, Professor of Classics at the University of California, Berkeley.

    Indo-European Etymological Dictionary
    The IED project is supervised by Alexander Lubotsky and Robert Beekes. The aim of the project is threefold:

    2. to create an Indo-European etymological database on the Internet;
    3. to compile a new Indo-European etymological dictionary, which will replace Julius Pokorny's Indogermanisches etymologisches Wörterbuch (Bern: Francke, 1959).

  1. [ General Interest ] Jack's Scribal and Epigraphic Fonts
    These are font sets that I have constructed myself. They are designed for the classroom or for publications where original scribal or epigraphic script would be more desireable than transcriptions. As I continue to create new sets I will post them here. These are Windows True Type fonts but I intend to regenerate them for the Mac as well. I hope you find them useful.

    Tables of Contents of Journals of Interest to Classicists
    TOCS-IN provides the tables of contents of a selection of Classics, Near Eastern Studies, and Religion journals, both in text format and through a Web search program. Where possible, links are given with articles of which the full text or an abstract is available online (about 15%). The project began to archive current tables of contents in 1992, and now contains ca 185 journals, and over 45,000 articles, in a database at Toronto. In addition, the Louvain mirror site archives much additional material for some of the journals before 1992. Searches of all data can be made at both sites. Some collections of articles (e.g., Festschriften) are also now included.

    The Latin Library
    These texts have been drawn from different sources. Many were originally scanned and formatted from texts in the Public Domain. Others have been downloaded from various sites on the Internet (many of which have long since disappeared). Most of the recent texts have been submitted by contributors around the world. I have tried to indicate on the Credit Page the edition and date of the original text and who (if known) was responsible for the initial HTML conversion. For the core of the classical texts, special acknowledgement is due to the submissions of Konrad Schroeder, Nicholas Koenig, Andrew Gollan and others to the Project Libellus. These have been downloaded with the permission of the contributors and presented here with additional HTML formatting. Occasionally texts are submitted by contributors or discovered on the Internet without indication of the edition from which they derive. If I am unable to identify the edition (which is often the case), I have attempted, if feasible, to conform the text to an out-of-copyright edition. The texts are not intended for research purposes nor as substitutes for critical editions. Despite constant effort to remove "scanner artifact" and other typographical errors, many such errors remain. The texts are presented merely for ease of on-line reading or for downloading for personal or educational use.

    The Ovid Project: Metamorphosing the Metamorphoses
    The importance of such classical authors as Ovid to the art, music, and literature of western civilization is legendary, yet many are not familiar with the original works that have provided this inspiration. The University of Vermont's rare book department contains an extensive collection of illustrated works of Ovid. Included are several editions of engravings by the 17th century German artist, Johann Wilhelm Bauer, depicting 150 scenes from the Metamorphoses. Each scene has a brief description in both Latin and German. Some plates from a 1640 edition of the translation done by George Sandys are also available.

    The Perseus Digital Library
    Perseus is an evolving digital library, engineering interactions through time, space, and language. Our primary goal is to bring a wide range of source materials to as large an audience as possible. We anticipate that greater accessibility to the sources for the study of the humanities will strengthen the quality of questions, lead to new avenues of research, and connect more people through the connection of ideas.
