News From the Library

Early English Books Online Added to Library's Collections

By Lisa Forrest

July 29, 2013

Burke Library is excited to announce a new addition to our database collection, Early English Books Online (EEBO).  Covering the years 1473-1700, EEBO includes digital reproductions of works produced by a printing press (such as books, pamphlets, and broadsides) in England and its colonies, along with works in English printed elsewhere. The library has also joined the Text Creation Partnership, which when complete, will allow keyword searching of approximately 70,000 of the 125,000 items in EEBO. In describing EEBO one reviewer wrote "It’s like waking up in the British Library after closing time.” Questions? Stop by the Information Desk, email a librarian at askref@hamilton.edu, or call 315-859-4735.
