The good folks at Walter de Gruyter just sent me information in the mail about free trial access to the Bibliotheca Teubneriana Latina (BTL) and the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (TTL). I have missed this kind of access dearly since moving from graduate school to high school teaching. Perhaps I shouldn’t have logged on, but it is powerful and fun.
BTL Online offers access to all of the Latin texts published by Teubner, from classical antiquity through to modern Latin.
TLL is, of course, the most scholarly and impressive dictionary in the world, and “the first to cover all the Latin texts from the classical period up to 600 A.D.”
So if you would like try, here’s the information:
It’s not clear how long you have access, but if you find it’s worth your while, you can always set aside some time to do research at a subscriber institution — unless of course you have an extra $1,637.00 to spend on an annual subscription.
You don’t suppose my high school library would purchase a subscription, do you? Hmm … anyway of ‘affiliating’ myself with your research institution, fair reader?
