Access the TLG at Emory
Choosing Fonts in TLG
The TLG works with Greek-specific fonts as well as unicode fonts. Upon entering the site, the user is asked how to display and enter Greek texts. The best practice is to choose unicode fonts, as this will allow easy typing into the system and easy copying and pasting from the system.
About the TLG
The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG) is the digital library of Greek texts produced by the research center of the same name, based at the University of California in Irvine. The project was founded in 1972, and it presents digital versions of Greek texts dating from Homer (~8th C BCE) to the fall of the Byzantine Empire (1453CE). The project is maintained and owned by the University of California. The library was originally available through magnetic tapes, then CD-ROM, and now on the world wide web (http://www.tlg.uci.edu/about/). The library is accessible by individual or instituation subscription (Emory has a University-wide subscription). Individual subscription costs $125 for one year or $500 for five years. The library consists of over 100 million words from over 10,000 texts from over 4,000 authors, with a powerful search engine.
