The project digilibLT is planning to offer a complete database of late-antique Latin authors and works as well as an exhaustive canon. Access to the canon and the database is free. Search windows are designed to allow users to search either the entire collection of texts or selection of them (by author, period, or type text) or single authors and works. Texts can be downloaded freely, which will allow individual scholars to work on the areas of interest with maximum flexibility. Texts are codified according to the TEI coding standard. The canon lists the critical editions on which the digital text is based; if this is the case, it also lists deviations from the critical text. The website also includes short entries on late-antique authors and works, bibliographies, and  canon entries.
