TLG now via campus-wide access

You may now access Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG) on campus computers and at home, if you are currently affiliated and logged in to the UMN site.

Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG)

TLG-for CNESBlog.jpg (400x600)


Title: Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG)
Description: TLG contains most literary texts written in Greek from Homer to the fall of Byzantium in AD 1453. The goal is to create a comprehensive digital library of Greek literature from antiquity to the present era. The web version currently provides access to 3,800 authors and 12,000 works, approximately 99 million words. It is updated quarterly with new authors and works. For the web version go to the main site and choose Canon or Abridged Online TLG. Site URL: http://stephanus.tlg.uci.edu/
Access URL: http://www.lib.umn.edu/get/12108


Here's the fine print:
Unlimited Annual subscription This is a change from the previous 3-workstation agreement (one in Wilson, two in CNES) This allows for use of the TLG from all campus IP ranges as well as remote access via VPN/proxy. It does not include access to alumni or groups other than current students, faculty or staff.

More about TLG
Thirty seven years after its establishment, the Thesaurus of the Greek Language is a reality. The TLG® Digital Library contains virtually all Greek texts surviving from the period between Homer (8 c. B.C.) and the fall of Byzantium in A.D. 1453. The TLG corpus is available in more than 2,000 universities and research centers around the world and used by thousands of researchers, educators, and students from a wide range of disciplines such as classics, archaeology, history, art, history, philosophy, linguistics, and theology/religious studies.

Some of the highlights include:

Look and feel - HathiTrust has been given a fresh, user-friendly design that unifies all parts of the website.
Accessibility - HathiTrust continues its tradition of style with function, paying particular attention to accessibility in major and minor functional components of the interface.
An engaging homepage - A consolidated search area and prominent links to user collections, hand-picked books, and the mobile interface, invite users to explore the HathiTrust collection. Links to social media, the HathiTrust Research Center, and HathiTrust projects provide updates on activities and invite engagement.
Login benefits - Users can now log in from anywhere on the site, and the login area of the homepage highlights the benefits of logging in to users from partner institutions.
Improvements to the reading interface - Our new online reading interface increases the amount of space available for reading books, while still keeping reading controls and bibliographic information readily accessible.
Persistent tabbed search box - Options for searching the bibliographic catalog and full-text of works have been combined into a single tabbed search, with help information to guide users in deciding which search to use. A persistent search header allows searches to be performed from any page on the website.
