Database of the Month: Thesaurus Linguae Graecae

The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG) is now available on three computers on the UST campus.  Founded in 1972, the TLG represents the first effort in the Humanities to produce a large digital corpus of literary texts.  The goal of the project is to create a comprehensive digital library of Greek literature from antiquity to the present era. The database contains a searchable collection of most literary texts written in Greek from Homer (8 c. B.C.) to the fall of Byzantium in AD 1453.

Access to the TLG is limited to the graduate philosophy reference room in Doherty, computer#9 in the Doherty lobby, and the third floor of Sullivan Hall.  From these computers, the TLG is accessible through the Databases page.
