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.
