Loeb digital

Just saw this on the Classics list:

Along with the Harvard University Press, which publishes Loeb's compact, colorful print volumes, the Loeb trustees recently announced that they are preparing to convert the Loeb series to a digital format that would allow any authorized user to search the English translations of the Loeb works for specific words, ideas, and phrases. Libraries would buy licenses to provide students and other authorized users access to the digital Loeb, which is expected to go live in 2013.

Nice, but it will be behind a pay wall...guess I had better stick to Perseus. Besides, it sounds like it is an English only search...
