Use the Colby Library catalog or CBBcat to find books; use databases JSTOR and Project Muse to find articles full-text; use l'Annee Philologique to find citations (with summaries) to more sources you can search for through the catalog at Colby, MaineCat, NExpress, or in WorldCat for Interlibrary Loan.
Subjects to search in the catalog: Greek drama (Tragedy) -- History and criticism and Theater -- Greece -- History or [e.g.] Aeschylus -- Criticism and Interpretation. Use notes and bibliographies in books to trace more sources for your particular enquiry.
When searching JSTOR, use Search> Advanced Search, and limit Type to Article; also narrow the Discipline to Classical Studies to cut down the number of results. For best results, include in your search personal names of people and gods involved in your topic. Use the notes and lists of references at the end of articles to find more sources for your enquiry.
When searching l'Annee Philologique, enter two or three keywords in the search box. You want to cast a wider net here, because despite the "Full Text" label, l'Annee is searching only the title and abstract of the articles. In the list that emerges when you click Search, click on the hot-linked titles to get a full citation and very brief summary. Remember that l'Annee is not a full text database - you will need to look up the results to find whether Colby owns them.
