Sources of Anglo-Saxon Literary Culture (SASLC) is a longstanding collaborative project by numerous scholars to map the sources that influenced the literary culture of Anglo-Saxon England. Taking inspiration from Ogilvy's Books Known to the English, it aims at a comprehensive, descriptive list of all authors and works known in England between c. 500 and c. 1100 CE

While the focus is Anglo-Saxon England, the sources themselves are largely Western European. Most entries concern classical, patristic, and medieval authors, works, or traditions.
