Search Tips

Personal Names: L'Année Philologique uses true Latin names and Romanized Greek names for ancient authors. Most other databases use the more common English name.

Library Catalog (Author Browse) uses: Virgil, Homer
L'Année Philologique uses:  Vergilius Maro (P.), Homerus

In L'Année Philologique, use the Ancient Author and Text search box to find the proper form of the author's name.

L'Année Philologique and most other databases use * to cut off a word stem, e.g. gladiator* retrieves gladiators, gladiatorial.

Type the word AND (or use the second row) if you want to enter more than one word that is not an exact phrase.

You can limit by modern language in the Advanced Search screen.

Search operators AND OR NOT must be ALL CAPS to work in the Homepage/Primo search.
