Accessing Burney and ECCO
We are grateful to Gale/Cengage for providing readers of this blog with access to the Burney Collection from August 19 through October 30, 2009, and to ECCO from September 9 to October 30, 2009. Many readers were able to explore these rich text-bases in full.
We hope this access has promoted an awareness of these text-bases’ power, both for scholarship and for teaching. We also encourage those who shared this access with students to write about the full range of that experience. Sharing those teaching experiences, as Dave Mazella has done on this site and as Laura Rosenthal and others have done on The Long Eighteenth, helps us see better how useful these text-bases are in the classroom. It also helps us identify potential problems and prepare for them. We hope readers will continue to talk about how these digital tools affect both scholarship and the classroom.
Again, many thanks to Gale/Cengage for allowing this rich learning experience.
Gale/Cengage has generously provided readers of emob with access to ECCO and to the Burney Collection of newspapers through October 30, 2009. These text-bases can be accessed by clicking here.
