Two new databases are now available through Databases@Emory!

First, the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (TLL): an exhaustive Latin dictionary, covering material from the classical period to late antiquity. Second, the Digital Teubner Library (BTL): a database including Latin literature from the Roman Republic to late antiquity, drawn from the Teubner collection of critical editions.
