Database Trials

Mossey Library occasionally will do a trial run of a database. These trials are open to all members of the Hillsdale College community.

Loeb Classical Library

Over a century ago, James Loeb announced the founding of the Loeb Classical Library and his intention to bring the written treasures of the ancient Greek and Roman world “within the reach of all who care for the finer things in life.” Every work is classified by language, form, genre, subject, and date, making both navigation and browsing simple. The database is searchable in Greek, Latin and English. The Library can be saved and organized as you like in your own digital workspace using the individual sign in option on the website.

Trial ends November 15.

Value Line Investment Survey

Arnold Bernhard founded Value Line in 1931 after spending several years on Wall Street as an employee of Moody’s Investors Service. He set out to develop a set of objective measures that would signal when a stock was overvalued and when it was undervalued – measures that would not yield to emotions. What followed revolutionized the practice of securities analysis and sent Value Line on its path to being one of the nation’s largest independent investment research services as well as a major money management institution. From the latest data, sophisticated tools and proven ranks to expert analysis and guidance, Value Line gives you the power to evaluate investments with confidence.

Mediae Latinitatus Lexicon

J. F. Niermeyer's Mediae Latinitatis Lexicon Minus is a highly practical lexicon, providing researchers, teaching staff and students in the field of Medieval History with concise, essential information. This new online edition, still the “compendious lexicon for rapid information” envisaged by Niermeyer, recreates the second print edition (2002) on Brill’s Dictionary Platform , providing French, English and German translations for every entry of a Medieval Latin concept and searches on lemma and full text. Searches can be refined by century of use. All entries are contextualized with relevant text passages. The Niermeyer Lexicon Minus has proved to be invaluable to medievalists for almost 50 years and is an indispensable working tool for academic libraries.
