Around February 22, and for 2-3 weeks following, readers of this blog will have temporary access to EEBO, thanks to the generosity of Proquest. For those of us who do not normally have access to EEBO, this provides an excellent opportunity to explore EEBO, both in our research and in our classrooms.
Last semester, when Gale/Cengage provided a free trial of ECCO, Dave Mazella graciously spearheaded our discussion of teaching with ECCO. We can now add to that discussion by hearing from readers how EEBO functions in classes and in research. Newly updated with a helpful “EEBO Introductions Series,” EEBO is adapting creatively to the scholarly and pedagogical possibilities offered by the web. Work EEBO into your classes and report back about your experience. Or use it in your research, and let us know of any bibliographical glitches or goldmines. Details regarding access will be provided here soon.
