Links to Resources Online

The Internet has become increasingly indispensable for study and research. It provides access to vast libraries of information, high-quality multimedia and tools for searching. On the other hand, the quality of content can be very variable, especially given the typical absence of any editorial control or academic processes such as peer review. Internet resources should therefore be used with caution.

The following is a guide to some of the most useful sites for Classical and medieval studies. It is intended as a work in progress, and suggestions are very welcome. Some of these resources are only accessible through institutional subscription: you may be able to gain access from within the NUI Galway campus network or alternatively via the Library catalogue (after logging on).

Note that you must reference citations from an Internet site just as you would for a printed resource.

1. GENERAL REFERENCE

  • Oxford Classical Dictionary (4th ed., 2012)
    The fundamental English-language reference work for Classical studies. In 2013 we invested in the electronic version of the new, fourth edition. This can be accessed either directly via the link above or off-campus via the library catalogue (requiring library log in).
  • OxfordReference.com
    A very good source for general reference. There is a subject search for Classics, though a general search can sometimes produce results just as interesting.
  • Wikipedia
    Wikipedia is a wonderful resource for general reference and for basic information about a topic. It is not reliable enough to be cited in academic work, however.
  • Dictionary of Irish Biography
  • Greek Mythology Link
    Various resources on Greek myth.
  • Méditeranées
    An excellent collection of resources relating to the Mediterranean in ancient and medieval times, in French.
  • Myth Index
    Dictionary of Greek (and Roman) mythology, with references to sources, illustrated with modern European paintings.
  • Oxford Dictionary of National Biography
  • Theoi: Greek Mythology
    Good visual resources and excellent encyclopedia entries referenced against primary sources.
  • Der Neue Pauly
