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 ejournals@lib.cam.ac.uk.  Thank you!

Key features of the Loeb Classical Digital Library include:

  • Single- and dual-language reading modes
  • Sophisticated Bookmarking and Annotation features
  • Tools for sharing Bookmarks and Annotations
  • Greek keyboard
  • User account and My Loeb content saved in perpetuity
  • Intuitive Search and Browse
  • Inclusion of every Loeb volume in print
  • Regular uploading of new and revised volumes

Some of the site’s most useful tools are features of “My Loebs,” the personal accounts available to all authorized users.  Please create your own account (via the “Sign up” link at the top of each page on the site) so as to utilize the digital Loeb Classical Library’s full capabilities.

“James Loeb specified the size of his iconic volumes with a view to easy portability. He wanted each volume to fit easily inside a coat pocket. Loeb might have been delighted to know that in the second century of its existence, the entire Library – in its new digital incarnation – can fit inside a coat pocket.”
