Index of References Dealing with Talmudic Literature (Saul Lieberman Institute, Jewish Theological Seminary of America):  an continuously updated serial bibliography that indexes "more than 1000 books from the Geonic to modern periods, covering both modern critical scholarship and traditional works. Moreover, the latest additions include references to significant studies in scholarly journals.  A user consults the unit of Talmudic text (eg. Mishna Berakhot 1, 2; Talmud Bavli Rosh Ha-Shanah 27a etc, often indicating lemma), and receives a list of scholarly works with the specific page or note in which the given Talmudic text is discussed.  A new feature of the internet version is direct links to some of the indexed books which are available on-line at Hebrewbooks.org" (Lieberman Institute).  Accessible via paid subscription only.  For a free demo, go here.

Open Greek and Latin Project (Universität Leipzig):  "The ultimate goal is to represent every source text produced in Classical Greek or Latin from antiquity through the present, including texts preserved in manuscript tradition as well as on inscriptions, papyri, ostraca and other written artifacts. Over the course of the next five years, we will focus upon converting as much Greek and Latin, available as scanned printed books, into an open, dynamic corpus, continuously augmented and improved by a combination of automated processes and human contributions of many kinds. . . .  The Open Greek and Latin Project aims at providing at least one version for all Greek and Latin sources produced during antiquity (through c. 600 CE) and a growing collection from the vast body of post-classical Greek and Latin that still survives."  "The Open Greek and Latin Project has recently signed a contract with the Saxon State and University Library Dresden (SLUB) to scan books dating between 1922-1984. In particular, we are digitising editions that are in the public domain under European law. The EU allows its state members to assert copyright protection over scholarly editions for up to 30 years after publication. The argument has been made that an edition’s critical apparatus constitutes a separate work. In light of this debate and of all applicable copyright regulations, we have adopted the following strategy:
 Editions published after 1922 whose editor(s) died before or during 1943 are being digitised in full (reconstructed text and critical apparatus).
 Editions published after 1922 whose editor(s) died after 1943 are only partially digitised (reconstructed text only)."
