Loeb Classical Digital Library

Cambridge now has trial access to the new Loeb Classical Digital Library, a digitization of the entire Loeb Classical Library’s editions of Greek and Latin literature, complete with their English translations.

“The Loeb Library, with its Greek or Latin on one side of the page and its English on the other, came as a gift of freedom… The existence of the amateur was recognised by the publication of this Library, and to a great extent made respectable… The difficulty of Greek is not sufficiently dwelt upon, chiefly perhaps because the sirens who lure us to these perilous waters are generally scholars [who] have forgotten…what those difficulties are. But for the ordinary amateur they are very real and very great; and we shall do well to recognise the fact and to make up our minds that we shall never be independent of our Loeb.”

—Virginia Woolf, The Times Literary Supplement, 1917

Access the trial of Loeb Classical Digital Library here – And please send us your thoughts on using the Loebs online by sending a message to  Thank you!

Key features of the Loeb Classical Digital Library include:

  • Single- and dual-language reading modes

100,000 digitized art history materials from the Getty

The Getty Research Institute has partnered with the Digital Public Library America, it was announced this week, to make 100,000 records for digital images and texts from its Library and Special Collections available via the DPLA search

This “vast trove of rare and unique materials for the study of visual culture” would “otherwise be findable only through individual institutions’ catalogues and specialized search portals”.

A Rosa Bonheur sketchbook from 1847 with studies of plants, peasants, farm tools, decorative objects, landscapes, and human figures

“As a DPLA content hub, the Getty Research Institute has contributed metadata—information that enables search and retrieval of material—for nearly 100,000 digital images, documentary photograph collections, archives, and books dating from the 1400s to today. We’ve included some of the most frequently requested and significant material from our holdings of more than two million items, including some 5,600 images from the Julius Shulman photography archive, 2,100 images from the Jacobson collection of Orientalist photography, and dozens of art dealers’ stockbooks from the Duveen and Knoedler archives.”

JULIUS SHULMAN: And it was another world. And then all the time that I was gone, the Museum of Modern Art in New York was building up its archives of contemporary architecture. And my archives at that time were consisting of the early work of Neutra and Schindler and the early architects I mentioned before. And as a result, since my wife was home, and she had the negatives–we had a good file system–she kept sending the negatives to a friend who had a darkroom and a full finishing place, and he made the glossy prints. And she would mail the pictures to the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and we’ve gotten an income from those photographs. And while I was in the army, she lived at her mother’s house, and so we had no expenses, so we made money even while I was in the army. Because as a private the first part of my army career, I was getting… What was the army pay for a private? Thirty-two dollars a month, I think.


JULIUS SHULMAN: And then I became a sergeant after that. And I think my salary was maybe forty dollars a month, so on. So whatever money I made I sent home. So we made money out of our photography career even in those years. [chuckles]

TAINA RIKALA DE NOREIGA: That’s quite extraordinary.

JULIUS SHULMAN: But you see, the main thing is life was easy. I was always quietly composed in my pursuit, always lived at home, worked at home–as I do now. Nothing is changed. I’m not in a hurry. Never have been. I’ve never pushed. I drive the same way when I’m on a highway or a street. I’m the slowest car on the road. Like when we went to Santa Barbara last Sunday. Took the back road by way of Highway 118, Simi Freeway, to Fillmore, Santa Paula, two-lane, the old-fashioned roads from way back, even though I’m driving a Volvo which is a high-speed powerful car. I was cruising along, the slowest car on the road on the Simi Freeway. I was going sixty miles an hour. Cars were passing me up as if I was standing still.


JULIUS SHULMAN: But I was enjoying the road, the drive.

TAINA RIKALA DE NOREIGA: Yeah, plus it’s a…

JULIUS SHULMAN: And it’s a beautiful feeling, to be composed in your own life , in your own mind. To be able to set your own pace.


JULIUS SHULMAN: No one’s ever pushed me. Deadlines. Never had deadlines.

Taylor and Francis Online Journal Collection: Chemistry

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Taylor and Francis Online Journal Collection: Chemistry.

chemistry bottles with liquid insideThe Taylor & Francis Chemistry Collection includes full text access to current material (from 1997-present) from over 45 journals.For a list of titles included in the collection please click here.

Journals titles in the collection include:

  • Chemistry and Ecology – original papers, short communications and occasional review articles on the relationship between chemistry and ecological processes. The journal will reflect the fact that chemical form and state, as well as other basic properties, are critical in their influence on biological systems and that understanding of the routes and dynamics of the transfer of materials through atmospheric, terrestrial and aquatic systems, and the associated effects, calls for an integrated treatment. We have access to current and archive volumes of this title from volume 1 (1982/1983) – present
  • Journal of Asian Natural Products Research –  publishes chemical and pharmaceutical studies in the English language in the field of natural product research on Asian ethnic medicine. Major fields covered are: isolation and structural elucidation of natural constituents (including those for non-medical uses), synthesis and transformation (including biosynthesis and biotransformation) of natural products, pharmacognosy, and allied topics. Available from volume 1 (1998/1999) – present
  • Molecular Physics – a well-established international journal publishing original high quality papers in chemical physics and physical chemistry. The journal covers all experimental and theoretical aspects of molecular science, from electronic structure, molecular dynamics, spectroscopy and reaction kinetics to condensed matter, surface science, and statistical mechanics of simple and complex fluids. We have access to current and archive volumes of this title from volume 1 (1958) – present.
  • Soft Materials – as soft materials are often at the heart of modern technologies, soft matter science has implications and applications in many areas ranging from biology to engineering. Unlike many journals which focus primarily on individual classes of materials or particular applications, Soft Materials draws on all physical, chemical, materials science, and biological aspects of soft matter. Available from volume 1 (2002/2003) – present.

Complete Prose of T. S. Eliot

New on eresources@cambridge A-Z: The Complete Prose of T. S. Eliot

The Complete Prose of T. S. Eliot brings together the collected, uncollected, and unpublished prose of one of the most prolific writers of the twentieth century into an eight-volume critical edition that “dramatically expands access to material that has been restricted or inaccessible in private and institutional collections for almost fifty years”.

The fully searchable, integrative edition includes all of Eliot’s collected essays, reviews, lectures, commentaries from The Criterion, and letters to editors, including more than 700 uncollected and 150 unpublished pieces from 1905 to 1965. Other highlights include essays from his student years at Smith Academy and Harvard and his graduate work at Harvard and Oxford, including his doctoral dissertation; unsigned, unidentified essays published in the New Statesman and the Monist; essays and reviews published in the Egoist, Athenaeum, TLS, Dial, Art and Letters; his Clark and Turnbull lectures on metaphysical poetry, Norton Lectures, Page-Barbour Lectures, Boutwood Lectures; unpublished essays, lectures, addresses from various archives; and transcripts of broadcasts, speeches, endorsements, and memorial tributes.

Each item has been textually edited, annotated, and cross-referenced by an international group of leading Eliot scholars, led by Schuchard, a renowned scholar of Eliot and Modernism. The volumes will be released in sequence and published on Project MUSE, with an archival print edition to be published once all eight volumes have been released. The first two volumes, Apprentice Years, 1905-1918 and The Perfect Critic, 1919-1926 will be published in 2014, with pairs of subsequent volumes scheduled for release in successive years.

“We suppose that there is an English literature, and Professor Gregory
Smith supposes that there is a Scotch literature. When we assume that a
literature exists we assume a great deal: we suppose that there is one of the
five or six (at most) great organic formations of history. We do not suppose
merely “a history,” for there might be a history of Tamil literature; but a
part of History, which for us is the history of Europe. We suppose not
merely a corpus of writings in one language, but writings and writers between
whom there is a tradition; and writers who are not merely connected by
tradition in time, but who are related so as to be in the light of eternity
contemporaneous, from a certain point of view cells in one body, Chaucer
and Hardy. We suppose a mind which is not only the English mind of one
period with its prejudices of politics and fashions of taste, but which is a
greater, finer, more positive, more comprehensive mind than the mind of
any period. And we suppose to each writer an importance which is not
only individual, but due to his place as a constituent of this mind. When
we suppose that there is a literature, therefore, we suppose a good deal.”
