This site is so important
I don’t want to detain you with mere praise of it. Go to it and be grateful
to Fordham University for a Kalpa or so.

This is a major, major one-stop shopping spree paradisio for the classicist
and classicist moonlighter. A wonderfully organized and elegantly showcased
to launch the visitor more fortuitously than the Argives.



 



Poemerium



This is the site of the Classics journal Poermerium. Extremely cosmopolitan
in scope (the articles are in German, English, French, and Italian), it
is offered free on the Internet (at least for now). Visitors can browse
the table of contents for the volumes archived, and either read or download
an article, or with the click of a mouse the visitor can download the entire
issue as a zipped file – in one’s choice of Mac or PC formats. In addition,
the journal is the hub of a very intricate and well-developed clearance
house for digital resources for any type of research need in the Classics.
These resources are beautifully laid out at lucidly categorized on a central
square grip. Thre are other features as well – recommended books (linked
to Amazon.com, classics links hotlists, and news items from the field.
A beautiful site and a real discovery. Use this while you can. All the
search services are free but the site warns that they aren’t always going
to be that way.





The Cambridge
Classics External Gateway to Humanities Resources



A terrific service from Cambridge University, the site organizes and
contextualizes an enormous array of Internet resources for the interdisciplinary
(or monodisciplinary) study of Western European Antiquity. Particularly
useful for research in philosophy, the history of medicine and technology,
theatre, art history, and linguistics.





Voice of the
Shuttle



UCSB English Professor Alan Liu’s groundbreaking humanities resource
compendium is virtually (no pun intended) the first of its kind. The Voice
of the Shuttle’s continual growth and Professor Liu’s meticulous maintenance
of the site ensures that it will not be surpassed – or even equalled within
the remainder our the slowtime interface. Here I link only the Classics
page. That alone will give first-time visitors an inkling of its magnitude.
But only an inkling. Use the Classics page frequently and well, but travel
around in there too. It rewards itself every time. (Professor Alan Liu
and Professor James J. O’Donnell
[of the University of Pennsylvania] are my Humanities/Internet heroes -
and I don’t say that lightly or without reason. You will be encountering
more of those reasons-about both of these scholars- not infrequently. We’ll
be seeing more of Professor O’Donnell’s Web presence on the Latin-centered
resources for this seminar.]

This is a glimpse of the reasons why Professor James J. O’Donnell is
one of my heroes. The list here is rich and constantly helpful. And this
is merely Professor O’Donnell’s bookmarks he organized for one of his courses!

Arethusa



This is one of the nearly fifty scholarly journals now digitalized and
made available for free from Johns Hopkins University Press over the computers
of students and faculty of institutions whose library has subscribed to
this remarkable new program, called Project
Muse
. Fortunately, UCSC is one of
those universities. This means you can call up any article from any of
these archived journals and print it up for free. And better still, the
search engine on that Project Muse site is capable of doing pretty sophisticated
searches of the database of archived journals on line. I have used it several
times already in preparaing for this seminar. And I sincerely hope you
will too. In fact, we should all not only make a point of using it [I’ll
bring in examples of how useful it is] but we should always drop ther reference
librarian and/or the Dean [both] a line letting them know how much we have
been using it and what a boon it has been. In times of perpetual budget
cuts, libraries are hit first (like in Alexandria), and within the library,
journals are the first to go. This Muse subscription allows the library
to do away with piecemeal subscriptions to many journals, but if there
is little sign that it is being used, we would have reason to fear the
Muse may not smile upon us for long.
