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:
Access URL:

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.

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.

The Project

"The Israel Museum welcomes you to the Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Project, allowing users to examine and explore these most ancient manuscripts from Second Temple times at a level of detail never before possible. Developed in partnership with Google, the new website gives users access to searchable, fast-loading, high-resolution images of the scrolls, as well as short explanatory videos and background information on the texts and their history. The Dead Sea Scrolls, which include the oldest known biblical manuscripts in existence, offer critical insight into Jewish society in the Land of Israel during the Second Temple Period, the time of the birth of Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism. Five complete scrolls from the Israel Museum have been digitized for the project at this stage and are now accessible online."
