Tools of the Trade for the Study of Roman Literature
Lowell Edmunds and Shirley Werner

This bibliography is oriented toward English speakers, though it is not confined to works in English. Other bibliographies are: 1. Forthcoming Editions of Latin and Greek texts. An up-to-date list in the Scholarly Tools section of Michael Hendry's home page. 2. Bibliotheca Classica Selecta by Jean-Marie Hannick and Jacques Poucet. A general bibliography to classical studies with annotations in French. 3. The Fifth Floor Reading Room Classics Reference Guide. This electronic guide to holdings in the Joseph Regenstein Library at the University of Chicago could be treated as an unannotated bibliography for classical studies. Please send suggestions to Lowell Edmunds at edmunds@rci.rutgers.edu or to Shirley Werner at sjwerner@rci.rutgers.edu.
