Database Quirks

  1. Search ancient authors names in their Latin forms: "v" appears as "u" unless the name starts with V. Greek names are converted to their Latin equivalent. For example:

    Livy -> Liuius (Titus)
    Ovid -> Ouidius
    Virgil -> Vergilius Maro
    Homer-> Homerus

  2. "Full Text" does not search the complete text of articles , only the citations and abstracts in the database.
  3. The article's title will be the best indication of its language. Abstracts can be in English, French, or German, and don't necessarily correspond to the language of the article. You can also limit your search by language.
