Abstract

The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG) is a digital library of Greek literature established in 1972 at the University of California, Irvine. The project has collected and digitized virtually all texts from the period between Homer (8th century BC) and AD 600 as well as all scholia, historiographical and lexicographical works from the period between AD 600 and the fall of Byzantium in 1453. Its collection at present includes nearly 10, 000 works from over 3, 000 authors - in excess of 75 million words - disseminated on compact disc. The TLG is a major resource for Classics-related research. The project continues to expand its digital collection through the addition of new works and the updating of older editions. Work is also underway to restructure its extensive data using new methodologies of text encoding and to develop tools to process the textual, bibliographic, and lexical information already residing in the TLG collection
