New! Thesaurus Linguae Graecae Database
Sounds Greek to me ...

The Libraries new database, Thesaurus Linguae Graecae, brings the history of Greek literature to scholars and students.

Thesaurus Linguae Graecae encompasses over 12,000 works, from 8 BC - 1453 AD. It provides information about the names, dates, geographical origins, and descriptive epithets for over 3,700 authors, together with detailed bibliographical information about existing text editions for each work.

A polytonic Greek font must be installed on a user's computer in order to view some work titles that appear in Greek. Depending on the browser, a user may be able to input their search in Greek. In many cases, they may have to type Beta Code or Latin Transliteration.

Users can access this resource from the front page of the Libraries website, either through IRIS or by following the path: Find Articles > Indexes and Databases > Arts and Humanities > Language and Linguistics > Thesaurus Linguae Graecae.
