  • Description The Perseus Project is an evolving digital library of resources for the study of the humanities. It consists of materials, textual and visual, on the Archaic and Classical Greek world. The project has expanded into other areas of the humanities adding tools for more languages, a variety of collections, and new types of materials. The classical foundation has paved the way for literary and historical collections ranging from the English Renaissance to the American Civil War, and Greek tools became a foundation for the development of resources in Latin, Italian, and Arabic. Perseus includes interactive online tools (e.g. map creator, Greek and Latin vocabulary tools). The classical foundation has paved the way for literary and historical collections ranging from the English Renaissance to the American Civil War, and Greek tools became a foundation for the development of resources in Latin, Italian, and Arabic. The project continues to explore new ways of presenting complex resources for electronic publication. Collaboration with the Digital Collections and Archives of Tufts University led to the Bolles Collection on London.
