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.
