Major Classics Resource Now Online

Acropolis Museum, Athens

The UVM Libraries now offer an online subscription to L’Année Philologique, the most comprehensive index to scholarly work about ancient Greece and Rome. Topics covered include history, mythology, religion, linguistics, literature, and archaeology.

L’Année Philologique indexes journal articles, books, conference proceedings, essays, and book reviews. The works cited appear in many languages—in some instances the abstract may be in a different language from the work itself. Unlike some other databases, L’Année Philologique provides references to major works, rather than full-text. You will have to use other tools, such as the library catalog, to track down the work cited.

The print version of L’Année Philologique takes the form of an annual index that dates back to 1924, and can be found in the Bailey/Howe reference collection. The online version begins in 1949, with older volumes being added retroactively each year.
