The range of authors contained herein is excellent. I have used this site as a
resource in several intermediate and advanced undergraduate Latin classes, both
for primary author texts and to do brief surveys--it is most handy for this.
We have found the texts to be reliable and error free thus far. A few years ago
one could not assign students a text that only existed on the web without
difficulty, as more than a few were not ready for this type of learning
experience. Now, however, the students are ready for this and grateful at not
having to purchase another textbook. It is also an excellent resource for
research--with machine searchable text now only a click away.

Technical Remarks:

The texts are easy to use online or download and import into a word processor.
Some works are well subdivided with html links to chapters, others are not.
