 Summary

The EEBO image collection contains around 125,000 images of early English printed books, covering subjects including English literature, history, theology, politics, medicine, and the history of science. The EEBO Text Creation Partnership is an extension of the EEBO image resource. The project encodes the books in XML using a version of the TEI, enabling researchers to do full text and other searches. There are more than 12,000 titles online and, with several hundred being added each month, it is an increasingly valuable resource. The aim of the EEBO project is eventually to make 25,000 books available in this way.
