Mega-sites (gateways to other content)

Electronic Resources for Classicists: The Second Generation contains not only links but also fonts and software downloads. This site is maintained by professional scholars at the University of California, Irvine.

The classics resource web page maintained at Princeton's Firestone Library: links to journals, article indices, texts, and the like. Note that some materials are password-protected and will not work, but most links are live to the public. Some tutorials on research technique are also included here.

Textkit provides a variety of free downloads of public-domain texts, grammars, and other resources. Note that Smyth's Greek grammar is available (though in an older edition).

The beginner's section of the Greek Language and Linguistics Gateway, a collection of language and grammar links.

The Library of Congress web resource page for classics and medieval history: selected external links; quick to use.

Greek Too!, a website affiliated with the Texas Classical Association, maintains a resource page. Most notably, there is a section on typing Greek, as well as a section with koine-related sites. (Access this site using the sidebar on the main page.)

Grammar sites

Donald Mastronarde's online Greek tutorials are posted on the web at Berkeley; these are designed to accompany his beginning Greek textbook. Drills are available for pronunciation, accentuation, paradigms, etc., and you can test yourself.

Greekgrammar.com contains a wide variety of links to other grammar-related websites; among other features, it groups resources according to language experience level.

Woodhouse's English-to-Greek dictionary (1910) is an invaluable resource for prose composition, and the University of Chicago has now placed it online. Follow with care the instructions for searching to produce the best results.

Helma Dik's pdf Greek handouts at the University of Chicago are printable, compact summaries of topics and paradigms.

Literature sites (both Greek and English)

Perseus, developed and housed at Tufts University, is an online "digital library" for all things classical, especially literature and archaeology. Many online texts here are hyperlinked to (older) commentaries, and "lookup tools" allow one to read texts in the classical languages online and use Perseus' electronic dictionaries for vocabulary assistance. No downloads.

The Internet Classics Archive provides some translations of ancient texts.
