Trial e-Resource - Loeb Classical Library

The Loeb Classical Library is newly available online, and we're delighted to have a trial of it until the middle of November 2014.

The Loeb Classical Library is a virtual library of more than 520 volumes of Latin, Greek, and English texts - all that is important in Greek and Latin literature - together with accurate English translations, and critical and explanatory notes.

Epic and lyric poetry; tragedy and comedy; history, travel, philosophy, and oratory; the great medical writers and mathematicians, etc., are all covered. 

With the Loeb Classical Library you can:
  • read every Loeb volume in print, including biannual additions
  • toggle between single- and dual-language reading modes
  • browse works and volumes of the library by author, language, period, form, genre, and subject
  • search across the full Loeb corpus in English, Latin, and Greek
  • bookmark, organise and annotate content in your personal workspace
  • share notes and reading lists with classmates, students, and colleagues
  • access regularly uploaded new and revised volumes
 Feedback - your comments about this resource would be much appreciated - please leave feedback below.

It looks really good. That would be a great asset for us postgraduate students!

Yes, please!

This is a very useful tool. If it could be made available to students through an off-campus sign-on, it would save loads of time for students engaged in research.

It would be a huge plus for research students--on and off-campus--if St. Andrews subscribes to LCL for electronic access.

This is a wonderful resource, which I've already used in the short few days since it's been available. I hope it's accessible well beyond November!

Jamie said...

yes yes yes - this would be an amazing addition to our e-resources and useful for postgrads and staff from ancient history, divinity, philosophy and more.

If we keep this resource, we will surely rise above Oxford and Cambridge—nay, THE WORLD!

Sasha said...

Brilliant resource!! Please can we have access for this for longer than just November? It makes life so much easier for students and lecturers alike.
Thank you!

This resource is great! It seems that it is not working off-campus (via VPN), is it because of the trial version?

Jean Young said...

Thanks, Tommi - database trials are almost always for on-campus access only
