The MARC records for 3,842 titles found in the Library of Latin Texts (Series A and B) have been added to the library catalog.  Special thanks to Kristen Frederickson, Information Processing Librarian, for uploading the records.

You can search the catalog using a title search or a keyword search using ‘Library of Latin Texts’.  Each catalog record contains a link directly to the work in the Library. Most of the works come from the print series, Corpus Christianorum Series Latina and Continuatio Mediaevalis as well as selections from the Teubneriana series.

Update: 2:00pm

Everything is working now, you should be able to access our databases and e-journals as normal.

Thank you for your patience!


We are currently experiencing problems with MetaLib and the SFX Link Resolver.

To access our databases please use the Alternative Access to Database Lists. You should be able to access all of our subscription databases that way.

The E-Journal Finder is also affected – please use e-Journals in WRLC (EJTF) to search for journal titles held by the databases. The search will be consortium wide, so pay attention to whether the journal is available at CU and click on the relevant link.

Both of these links can also be found on the University Libraries homepage.

If you have any questions please call 202-319-5070 or Ask A Librarian.
