Getting Started

Best Places to Get Started


Welcome to the Classical Studies Library Guide.  The best way to navigate through through this site is by using the tabs at the top of each page.  Let me give a brief explanation as to how each section is organized and what it contains.  Let's start with:

ASU Databases  This section primarily consists of databases that index and in some cases provide full text access to  to resources that will aid in research in Classical Studies Studies in a variety of fields.. With few exceptions, these databases are accessible off-campus only to the current ASU community(students, faculty and staff).  

Bibliographic Resources  Both ASU access only and open access web resources dealing with bibliographic resources for Classical Studies

Primary Sources    In many ways, "primary sources" for classical studies means the original written texts. Through the internet, it is now possible to gain access to a huge wealth of primary source material that in the past would have been available only through visiting libraries and archives.  The Primary Sources page is divided into two main categories: resources available through ASU Library and sites freely available on the Internet.  The Primary Sources page concludes with a section on how to evaluate primary sources on the Internet.

Web Resources  The web sites on this page are all available on the internet and do not necessarily fit into any of the other categories.  

Citing Sources  Collected here are several links for sites relating to citation manual sources and to RefWorks.

Reference and Electronic Resource Collections  This page includes reference works, both in print and in e-format as well as lists of e book and e journal collections.
