    Dear Latin I,

    Great to see you!   As you remember, there is a research guide containing curated library eCollections selected for this assignment.   Just getting started?  The Gale Virtual Reference Collection is a great place to get background information on various aspects of Ancient Roman culture, as is the eBook Daily Life in the Roman City (Greenhaven, 2004) found within the Ebsco Academic eBook  collection.     Looking for voices from the time?  Consider the eBook Voices of Ancient Greece and Rome (Greenwood, 2012) for documents created by Ancient Romans.  Research questions?  Please be in touch!  Ms. Sanborn
