Perseus Digital Library

April 11, 2013

I have decided to introduce a new section to my blog focusing on useful internet resources for the study of classics.

The first resource I have decided to include is the Perseus Digital Library. In order not to replicate information readily available if you would like to find out more about the library you can click, here.

The Perseus Digital Library is a useful resource for people who are studying or have a particualr interest in Classics. The website has good translations of the texts such as Plutarch, Thucydides, Suetonius and Plato (there are far too many to name). Resources can be accessed in Books and Sections making navigation swift. It is also easy, if you know which section you need, to go straight to that point in the text. There is also an Art and Archaeology section with pictures and descriptions of artefacts and some ancient sites.

The site is extremely user friendly and can be used free of charge (there are some costs associated with certain copyrighted material).

I have used the site to undertake research for several essays and have found it a very valuable resource. I hope you will find it as useful as I have.
