Perseus Hopper is a digital library of Greek and Latin resources from the Perseus Digital Library of Tufts University. The library includes access to the Perseus Digital Library's corpus of over 2,000 Latin and Greek texts, digitized and available in structured data format. The project was started by Ross Scaife, a pioneer of digital humanities.
Since planning began in 1985, the Perseus Digital Library Project has explored what happens when libraries move online. Two decades later, as new forms of publication emerge and millions of books become digital, this question is more pressing than ever. Perseus is a practical experiment in which we explore possibilities and challenges of digital collections in a networked world. Perseus maintains a web site that showcases collections and services developed as a part of our research efforts over the years. The code for the digital library system and many of the collections that we have developed are now available. Our flagship collection, under development since 1987, covers the history, literature and culture of the Greco-Roman world. We are applying what we have learned from Classics to other subjects within the humanities and beyond. We have studied many problems over the past two decades, but our current research centers on personalization: organizing what you see to meet your needs.
