Our two-fold mission

  1. Publishing and curating critical editions of Latin texts, of all types, from all eras, and facilitating an ongoing scholarly conversation about these texts through open collaboration and annotation.
  2. Facilitating the finding and, where openly available and accessible online, the reading of all texts written in Latin.

Latin texts of all types, of all eras.

 

The Digital Latin Library

TabletThe Digital Latin Library (DLL) is a joint project of the Society for Classical Studies, the Medieval Academy of America, and the Renaissance Society of America. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation's Scholarly Communications Program funds the project, and the University of Oklahoma hosts it.

We use the word "library" to describe our project because that word's many meanings apply to what we're building: a library of texts and resources, a place where individuals and groups can study and collaborate on projects, a series of volumes published according to a uniform standard, and resources for digital applications.
