“As regards filling the gaps in your Greek library and exchanging books and acquiring Latin ones, I should very much like all this done, especially as I too stand to benefit. But I have nobody I can employ on such business, not even for myself. Books, at least such as one would like to have, are not on the market and they can’t be obtained except through an expert who is willing to take trouble.” – Cicero, Letters to Quintus, 24 (III.4) Rome, 24 October 54
Pepperdine Libraries have purchased the digital Loeb Classical Library. The digital Loeb Classical Library contains over 520 volumes and is updated twice a year as new Loeb books are published.
“The mission of the Loeb Classical Library, founded by James Loeb in 1911, has always been to make Greek and Latin literature accessible to the broadest range of readers. The digital Loeb Classical Library extends this mission into the twenty-first century. Harvard University Press is honored to renew James Loeb’s vision of accessibility and presents an interconnected, fully searchable, perpetually growing, virtual library of all that is important in Greek and Latin literature. Epic and lyric poetry; tragedy and comedy; history, travel, philosophy, and oratory; the great medical writers and mathematicians; those Church Fathers who made particular use of pagan culture — in short, our entire Greek and Latin Classical heritage is represented here with up-to-date texts and accurate English translations. More than 520 volumes of Latin, Greek, and English texts are available in a modern and elegant interface, allowing readers to browse, search, bookmark, annotate, and share content with ease.”
Users of the digital Loeb Classical Library can highlight and annotate content, save searches, and create bookmarks. Visit the Loeb FAQs for more information.
