Finding Secondary Literature

Track down references.

  • Use Citation Linker to try to  track down a reference you find in a bibliography.
  • For books check the title in the online catalog and find more books by clicking on subject headings and by browsing on nearby shelves.

Use Indexes and Databases.

  • L'Année philologique is the standard index for classical studies, although its coverage begins about three years before the present.
  • More recent coverage can be found using the Gnomon and TOCs-IN (Tables of Contents of Interest to classicists) databases. Archäologische Bibliographie (Dyabola) is a very comprehensive index of work in classical archaeology. It is not, however, for the faint of heart.
  • JSTOR is an indispensable full-text collections of scholarly journals. It includes many important journals for ancient history and classical studies. Note however, that in most cases there is a three to five year delay before journals are added to JSTOR: it does not contain the most recent scholarship.

Use Online Reference Works - they provide bibliographic references both to ancient sources and recent scholarship.


  • Brill's New Pauly  is also very useful. Most entries include brief bibliographies that will direct you to important work on the topic.  and
