Searching Loeb Classical Library
Search tips courtesy of Loeb Classical Library: https://www.loebclassics.com/page/searchinglibrary/searching-the-library


Search Header

This is the most basic search function. Situated in the top, right-hand corner of every page, the “Search” window allows users to look for any Greek, Latin, or English word(s) across the entire library. You can refine your results by Language, Author, Form, Period, and Genre/Subject with the “Narrow Your Choices” menu. Use this search to cast the widest possible net.

    Search Within Results

    Once you have narrowed your results, you can refine even further by using the “Search within results” window located above the “Narrow Your Choices” menu. For instance, you may wish to find all instances of the word “Muses” where “Apollo” also appears. This function also provides an easy way to search across multiple works by a single author using the Author Browse.

    Search Within a Work

    If you want to restrict your search to a single work, browse to that work and use the “Search within work” window located in the toolbar at the bottom of the page. This function is also useful for finding epigrams in The Greek Anthology by searching for an author's name.

    Search Tips

    • To find hyphenated words or exact phrases, enclose them in quotation marks.
    • To find part of a word, enter the part you want to find and replace the rest with an asterisk or question marks. A single asterisk replaces any number of characters greater than zero. Each question mark replaces a single character.
    • Note that words divided by editorial sigla such as brackets are not currently included in search results.

    Advanced Search

    Use to locate highly specific content. Advanced searches may be filtered to find search terms in specific parts of a work, for instance recto (right-hand, English) or verso (left-hand, Greek/Latin) pages, notes, and work titles. Can also be filtered to find search terms in front and back matter, by author, and by editor/translator. Advanced searches may be filtered to find multiple words in different combinations using AND, OR, and NOT.

      Reading eBooks

      This tutorial describes several helpful features for using an EBSCO ebook:  viewing the table of contents, searching within the full text, saving personal notes, looking up words in the dictionary, and printing.

      Searching EBSCO Ebooks in the EBSCO Interface

      Below is a tutorial on searching the EBSCO interface. *Please note: downloading an entire ebook is not available through the campus subscription.

      Save, Print, Email

      Can I print, email, or save EBSCO eBook pages as a PDF?

      Yes: depending on publisher-specified limits, up to 100 pages (per user) of an EBSCO eBook can be printed, saved, or emailed as a PDF file from within the eBook viewer to be printed at a later time.


      • Some titles may not allow for printing due to individual publisher-specified limits.
      • The number of pages may vary depending on individual publisher-specified limits.
      • If you have reached your printing limit, the option to print or save eBook pages will be temporarily unavailable.

      Citing eBooks

      How do I cite EBSCO eBooks?

      EBSCO eBooks are available in both PDF and EPUB formats. PDF books have page numbers that typically correlate with the print version of the title, and those page numbers may be used for citation purposes. EPUB eBooks are formatted with reflowable text, which means the text resizes to fit the viewing window, and therefore they do not have stable pagination.

      Most citation style guides, particularly in the humanities, make allowances for eBooks without stable page numbers. Visit EBSCO's ebook citation support page.

      For more information on citation styles and support, see the Monmouth College Library citing sources guide.
