Explore Digital Loeb Classical Library

The WU Libraries have begun a trial of the digital Loeb Classical Library, which will run through the end of November. Founded by James Loeb in 1911, the Loeb Classical Library strives to make Greek and Latin literature accessible to the broadest audience possible. The digital Loeb Classical Library features a fully searchable, ever-evolving, virtual collection of Greek and Latin texts that includes key works of epic and lyric poetry, plays, history, philosophy, and oratory. More than 520 volumes can be accessed through Loeb’s easy-to-use interface, which lets readers browse, search, bookmark, annotate, and share content.

Highlights include:

  • Single- and dual-language reading modes
  • Sophisticated bookmarking and annotation features
  • Greek keyboard
  • User account and My Loeb content saved in perpetuity
  • Regular uploading of new and revised volumes

Information about the digital Loeb Classical Library has been added to the trials section of the A-Z database list on the Libraries’ website. The Libraries’ decision to purchase and/or subscribe to this tool is based on feedback, price, and available funds. We welcome your comments. Please send feedback to your subject librarian.
