I have not seen an amp which will deal
with a source voltage under 6V but for
6V or more I recommend the OP177G for
use with a single supply using another
OP177G wired for unity gain with a
reference of 1/2 that voltage to use
as a small signal ground.
You must remember here that the OP177G does
not go RAIL to RAIL so if you want to
use B+ or B- as ground you will need a
UNITY gain OP177G with the + input tied to
B+ or B- for ground references.
B+ then or so will B- seem to float at the proper extreme
to use as a ground.

If you use a split supply the smallest will be
+/- 3.0 Volts.

It works fine for me either way.

I am no engineer but these ideas seem
to work well for myself.
