Early English Books Online partnership renewed

Monday, August 26, 2019   (0 Comments)

The Renaissance Society of America and ProQuest are delighted to announce that their unique partnership allowing RSA members to access Early English Books Online (EEBO) has been renewed.

The renewal coincides with EEBO moving to the powerful, newly-enhanced ProQuest Platform (from its legacy Chadwyck-Healey interface).

The ProQuest Platform offers a modern research experience, guiding discovery, access and management of content sources. In addition to an overall modern research experience, browsing indexes and book downloading into a PDF will be faster, and post-processing tasks, such as citing, saving and sharing materials into workflow tools is greatly enhanced. Additional benefits include multi-faceted search results filters.

Where multiple copies of a given book exist in EEBO (i.e. multiple copies typically originating from different source libraries), a separate record has been created for each individual copy with links provided to each sister copy. Similarly, individual records have been created for each issue within the Thomason Tracts periodicals, again with links provided to each sister issue in the periodical concerned. This has increased the number of items in EEBO from 132,000 to 146,000.

Click here to view a guide to using EEBO, which offers more detailed information on how to use EEBO on the ProQuest Platform with links to webinars and other resources. Please note that due to technical exigencies, for the RSA subscription the migration to the new EEBO platform is complete; the old platform is no longer available.

Renaissance Society of America members will be required to read and accept the revised terms and conditions for use of the EEBO database. Click here to read the EEBO terms and conditions.

To access EEBO as an RSA member, please log into your rsa.org account and navigate to the Member Benefits page — it’s the same page that offers access to Renaissance Quarterly. Scroll down to the Early English Books Online database (EEBO) heading to find the access link.
