Planning for the Perseus Digital Library began in 1985, and they have made a series of ambitious changes, additions, and transformations over the past several decades. The Library is best known for their coverage of the history, literature, and culture of the Greco-Roman world. They recently unveiled this new website, and it is well worth a look. Along the top of the homepage, visitors will find sections such as "Collections", "Art & Arch", and "Publications". In the "Collections" area visitors will find thousands of primary and secondary sources for the study of ancient Greece and Rome, along with a number of resources on early modern English literature and life in the 19th century United States. The "Art & Arch" area contains an impressive library of art objects that includes over 1500 vases, 1400 sculptures, and approximately 500 coins. Additionally, the "Publications" area includes work that discusses the process of creating the Perseus collection and its related databases.
