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.

'Sites Potentially Useful for Latin Students' compiled by Ted Higgs for the University of Kentucky; contains an extensive list of titled, unadorned links organized into subcategories such as "dictionaries," "grammar," "study helps," "primary sources," and "bibliographies."

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.

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

Grammar sites

Literature sites (both Latin 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 Latin Library at Ad Fontes Academy provides classical, late antique, medieval, and neo-Latin texts.

The Internet Classics Archive provides some translations of ancient texts.
