An Interesting Proposal from Logos Software

Mike Aubrey has passed on some interesting news that Logos Software is thinking about digitizing Migne's Patrologia Graecia. For those who don't know it, Migne's PG is, arguably, the most comprehensive attempt to pull together all the Greek Fathers and remains the best text for many patristics texts. Even if new editions are out, the Migne text remains an important resource. Needless to say, digitizing Migne would be a helpful resource for patricists, even if amateurs, I suspect, will find the price for the product steep, especially because it seems targetted to libraries and institutions.

Anyways, more information at Mike's blog en epheso

I'm pretty sure this has been done already. They can be found in google books, but I think someone did a proper digitalisation as well. They didn't give it away for free, IIRC it was rather expensive.

probably one of the most helpful parts for a Logos edition would be the use of LSJ & the OLD, just with a double click on the words.
