    2. 2. I need to read a book published in the 17th century. The book I want is out on loan. What can I do?How can I find books on my reading list? I’ve found an image of a sculpture online: can I use it in my essay? Can I really use Twitter to help with my studies? Where can I find Latin and Ancient Greek texts online? I’m researching a Roman emperor, but there are many different spellings of his name I’m looking for photographs of archaeological sites I want to read historic newspapers online: what have you got? Where can I find images of ancient manuscripts online? Have you got any Latin and Greek dictionaries? I’m after a couple of academic articles on an ancient history topic: what’s the best starting point? I’ve heard there are some good podcasts on Ancient Philosophy. Where?
