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 TLGĀ® 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.

TLG is a comprehensive, full text database in Greek of most surviving texts from Homer
to the fall of Byzantium (1453) and beyond. All texts are in Greek using ancient Greek fonts or standard transliteration for search queries. Knowledge of ancient Greek is needed to make use of this resource.

Oxford Handbooks in Philosophy

| No Comments

We are in the process of ordering 33 titles in Oxford Handbooks in Philosophy. This will be a wonderful addition to our reference resources in philosophy.

Currently we have access to four titles in religion, and more in business.

To view the list of all titles we'll be able to access, visit:
http://www.oxfordhandbooks.com/oso/public/oho_philosophy/subject_home.html

The four titles in religion that we have already are:
The Oxford Handbook of Holocaust Studies
The Oxford Handbook of the Dead Sea Scrolls
The Oxford Handbook of Evangelical Theology
The [Oxford] Handbook of Religious Diversity

Once we have full access, I'll post the news here, and you'll see the titles in MNCAT and in the Articles tab, both at www.lib.umn.edu
