Full-text resources. Log-in using Rutgers netID credentials. This enables downloading and creating an individual collection.
Creating digital libraries in specific subject areas is both very important to scholars and an opportunity for academic libraries to support the work of academic departments. Rutgers University Libraries is addressing this need by offering a collection of over 80 classics texts in this dedicated Classics Texts Portal. Many are classic titles now available in old and brittle editions.
Using the subject Browse list is a convenient way to become familiar with these collections - see the Search and Browse functions below. Authors represented include Aristotle, Boethius, Epictetus, Galen, Marcus Aurelius and Plato. Some less famous works are included. Full text searching can be done across the entire collection for those texts that are in English or Latin.
You may also find William Smith's (1813-1893) Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities (1870) useful.
Search by Author in QuickSearch, using the most familiar form of the name. Thus: Terence, not Terentius Afer.
Search by Title: Use the original title where known to find editions, but translations can be found under it or a translated title. For example, Choephori or Libation bearers.
