About "Tools"

Module by: Sander M. Goldberg. E-mail the author

Summary: An introduction, including content and contact information for 'Tools of the Trade: Bibliographies for Roman Studies.'

About “Tools”

Tools of the Trade was conceived by Lowell Edmunds as a bibliographic guide for graduate students and others interested in furthering their knowledge of the Roman world. When the expansion of scholarly resources and the growing capabilities of web-based publication made a second edition desirable, Professor Edmunds decided to divide the project into thirteen discrete bibliographies, each with its own editor/compiler.

At this point, the project was passed on to Sander M. Goldberg of UCLA, who has assumed responsibility for editing the final documents and posting them on this site. The content and form of each bibliography has been determined by the subject editor, who is identified in the heading for each document. Specific suggestions, questions, and comments about its content should be addressed to that individual. General questions and comments should be addressed to Professor Goldberg.

When complete, the project will cover the following topics:

Concordances and Indices Verborum
Fragmentary Authors
History of Roman Literature
Latin Linguistics and Etymology
Latin Meter
Modern Grammars and Ancient Grammarians
Roman Religion
Roman Social Life and Customs
Roman Topography
Specialized Vocabularies
Textual Criticism and Textual Transmission

We hope this material proves useful and welcome your comments and suggestions.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
