„LLT-A forms a continuation of the CLCLT and  incorporates 3,854 texts.
A slightly different approach has been chosen for LLT-B, an approach which makes it possible to capture new texts on a significantly larger scale and in a much shorter time than has previously been the case.
The Cross Database Searchtool (CDS) enables users to consult and search the different full-text Latin databases of Brepols Latin: the Library Of Latin Texts (LLT, Series A and B), the electronic Monumenta Germaniae Historica (eMGH), the Archive of Celtic-Latin Literature (ACLL), and the Aristoteles Latinus Database (ALD) simultaneously.“

CASSIOD. Ios. antiq.„This site will offer a transcription of the Latin versions of Flavius Josephus‘ two largest works, the Jewish War and the Antiquities. The Latin has been made to align with the Greek text (from Niese), which is then aligned with the English translation produced by Whiston in 1737. This project will supersede the editions of both Blatt and the Frobenius: it will eventually provide a complete, searchable text of the Latin versions of Josephus‘ two largest works (Blatt is incomplete), based on an early manuscript.  As of Jan. 21, 2014, the site provides Antiquities I-V, equalling the coverage of Blatt.“
Catullus online„This website offers a critical edition of the poems of Catullus, a repertory of conjectures on the text, an overview of the ancient quotations from Catullus that have independent source value, and high-quality images of some of the most important manuscripts. „
