Logo for l'annee philologiqueFor in-depth research, however, use L'Annee Philologique, the main research database for Classics.

  • Includes journal articles, books, dissertations, etc.
  • Coverage is from 1924 to date.
  • Print volumes on the 7th floor of Alden (call number:  Z7016 .M35A) also go back to 1924.
  • Search for either ancient authors or modern scholars, as well as various subjects and disciplines.

And don't worry about the French title; a loose translation is "The year in Classical Studies." The database is very international in scope, with an English interface and many English-language sources.
