This digital version of Thomas Dwight Goodell's, A School Grammar of Attic Greek (New York: D. Appleton and Co., 1902) was created in 2013–2014 with support from the Roberts Fund for Classical Studies and the Mellon Fund for Digital Humanities at Dickinson College. The work was scanned by the Internet Archive. Bruce Robertson of Mount Allison University performed the OCR using Rigaudon, the output of which is available on Lace. At Dickinson the OCR output was edited and the XML and HTML pages created by Christina Errico. Ryan Burke created the web interface, and Meagan Ayer edited and corrected the HTML pages.
