Description

Early English Books Online (EEBO) contains digital images of virtually every work printed in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, British North America, and works in English printed elsewhere between 1473 and 1700. It is a key resource for students of all aspects of the early modern period.

With the University of Michigan Library, the Bodleian Libraries led the Text Creation Partnership (TCP), a project that created digital editions of every unique title in English from EEBO. These texts are marked up in Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) compliant XML and used to power the full-text search via EEBO and other interfaces.

This one-hour workshop will introduce both EEBO and TCP, suggesting ways to make the most of this valuable resource. It will include an introduction and hands-on training. You may find it useful to bring a laptop.

The workshop is organized by the Centre for Digital Scholarship and the Bodleian iSkills training programme.
