The Digital Corpus of Literary Papyri (DCLP) is a joint project of the Institute for Papyrology at the University of Heidelberg and of the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University. It is co-directed by Roger Bagnall and Rodney Ast with funding provided by paired grants from the US National Endowment for the Humanities and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.

DCLP is building on the tools and achievements of the Integrating Digital Papyrology project to establish a database of texts and cataloging data for the ancient papyrus manuscripts of Greek and Latin literature and texts of a quasi-literary nature. Other project partners include DVCTVS, the Duke Collaboratory for Classics Computing, the Institut für Klassische Philologie I, Gräzistik at the University of Würzburg, the Leuven Database of Ancient Books (LDAB), Centro Internazionale per lo Studio dei Papiri Ercolanesi, the Parma Digital Medical Library project, and Trismegistos.
