Latin Language Resources Online Trial

Emory Libraries has begun a trial of two Latin-language databases from deGruyter. These are the Bibliotheca Teubneriana Latina (BTL) and Thesauras Linguae Latinae (TLL). We encourage you to use and evaluate these resources and let us know whether you think they are worth purchasing.

The BTL has more than 1100 Latin texts representing over 600 authors. The database allows for full text searching and the abilty to organize the corpus by author, genre, and time period. You can access the BTL here (Emory credentials required)

The TLL is a Latin dictionary that aims to comprehend the complete record of the ancietn Latin language from its documented beginnings through 600CE. The print resource, a collaboration of German universities that began in 1894, is now 2/3s complete, up through the letter P. The online database provides access to all articles, but it also enables advanced searching of the dictionary, with hyperlinks to the Latin texts in the Index Librorum. You can access the TLL here (Emory credentials required)
