The Perseus Project is a digital library project of Tufts Universitymarker that assembles digital collections of humanities resources. It is hosted by the Department of Classics. It suffers, unfortunately, from very frequent computer hardware problems, and because of this its resources are often unavailable. The project is mirrored by the Max Planck Society in Berlinmarker and the University of Chicagomarker.

The project was founded in 1987 to collect and present materials for study of ancient Greece. It has published two CD-ROMs and established the Perseus Digital Library on the World Wide Web in 1995. The project has expanded its original scope; current collections cover Greco-Roman classics, the English Renaissance, the papers of Edwin Bolles, and the history of Tufts University.

The editor-in-chief of the project is Gregory Crane, the Tufts Winnick Family Chair in Technology and Entrepreneurship. He has been editor-in-chief since the founding of the Perseus Project.

Ancient Greek works in Perseus are stored as beta code, though they can be reformatted for display into a variety of transcription systems.
