Happy First Day of Classes!

August 15, 2011

Fall semester classes begin today at UGA.  Here’s an inspirational quote on what demanding teachers can do for their students:

If you can get through one of Miss Lang’s Greek classes, you know that with a similar level of strategic planning, determination, and hard work you can write a book, you can survive in the wilderness, you can save a historic house from demolition, you can fix the plumbing, you can win an election, you can run your own business — whatever you want to do. In fact all that will probably be easier than the Greek was. The fact is that by believing in our abilities so firmly Miss Lang caused us to have those abilities in the rest of our lives, and that is the most amazing gift that a teacher can offer.

From a talk by Eleanor Dickey, at the memorial service for Mabel Lang, April 3 2011, Bryn Mawr College.

UGA Libraries Classics-Related Acquisitions: July 2011

August 9, 2011

In the five weeks since my last post on this topic, the UGA Libraries added 5395  items to the Main Library collection.

I realize I’ve never mentioned that the “New Titles” interface of the UGA library catalog is open to the public, with keyword searching possible, and results that can be sorted by call number, author, or title.

Works of interest to those in Classics and related fields include the following (in LC call number order); as always, the boundaries for inclusion at the fringes of the discipline are somewhat arbitrary, depending on what struck me as interesting this month!
