Since planning began in 1985, the Perseus Digital Library Project has explored what happens when libraries move online. Two decades later, as new forms of publication emerge and millions of books become digital, this question is more pressing than ever. Perseus is a practical experiment in which we explore possibilities and challenges of digital collections in a networked world. For the mission of Perseus and its current research, see here.
Perseus maintains a web site that showcases collections and services developed as a part of our research efforts over the years. The code for the digital library system and many of the collections that we have developed are now available. For more information, please go here. If you are interested in running a mirror of the Perseus Digital Library, please contact the webmaster.
Our flagship collection, under development since 1987, covers the history, literature and culture of the Greco-Roman world. We are applying what we have learned from Classics to other subjects within the humanities and beyond. We have studied many problems over the past two decades, but our current research centers on personalization: organizing what you see to meet your needs.

EpistemeLinks was started in 1997 and later grew to include over 19,000 categorized links to philosophy resources on the Internet and had several additional features. After becoming increasingly out of date, the site was taken down in 2011. This page now provides selected links to some outstanding resources for philosophy. I hope you find this listing helpful. – Thomas Stone
