Electronic resources for studying myth.

The sheer amount of websites, good and bad, devoted to classical studies is nothing less than staggering.

     Here are three useful sites, all of them informative and authoritative, which will enhance your study of Greek and Roman myth.

  Encyclopedia Mythica.

     A searchable database of mythical personae, mostly text but with some images.  If you need fast background information on a character in our readings, this is your first stop.  The author of the site is Mr. Micha F. Lindemans of the Netherlands, who works with various contributors on the articles.

  The Perseus Project.

     The Perseus Project is the premiere scholarly website for studying antiquity.  The online version contains images, texts, dictionaries — all of it well organized and fairly quick to access.

Furthermore, the CD-ROM version of Perseus, which contains even more information than its online counterpart, is available over the local Skidmore network.  From "Network Neighborhood" click on \\cits6\library\cdrom\ perseus\experts.txt for instructions on accessing the Perseus CD-ROM from your own machine.

  Interactive Ancient Mediterranean.

     Sponsored in part by the departments of Classics and History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, IAM is an "on-line atlas of the ancient Mediterranean world designed to serve the needs and interests of students" at all levels of education.
