I'm a third year Political Science and Classical Studies double major
at the University of Guelph. This summer I've been hired by the
Classics department to work on a research project and I was wondering
if anyone out there in the vastness of the internet might be able to
give me a hand.
To locate and create HTML cross-linking documents of the Delphine
Classics. This includes all three parts - the original Latin work,
the summary of the work, and all the commentary and notes.
Normally this shouldn't be too much of a problem, right? Find the text,
do a quick translation to see what's good and what's not-so-useful,
write up some simple HTML code, and hoo-ha I'd be done.
The problem is...there is no electronic copy of these works to be
found. I really don't want to have to scan and OCR the text in all
these books. I've searched everywhere I could think of and have found
nothing. The closest I've come is a copy of one of the book from the
Metamorphoses on EEBO but the text is too blurry to be OCR-ed.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
