The Library of Latin Texts is the world's leading database of Latin texts containing literature and texts from antiquity. The Loeb Classical Library is a collection founded by James Loeb containing ancient and medieval literature.

The Library of Latin Texts by Brepols Publishers includes full-text materials: the Library of Latin Texts, the Monumenta Germaniae Historica, the Archive of Celtic-Latin Literature and the Aristotle Latinus Database, and the dictionary set Database of Latin Dictionaries. The current version contains more than 147 million words. 

The digital Loeb Classical Library, published by Harvard University Press, contains more than 520 volumes. In addition to primary-language literature, Loeb also includes English translations of the texts. Navigation capabilities have also been improved during the fall of 2022. For more information, please see the publisher's website.

You can find the links to both databases on the Library's Databases A-Z list.
