Description

Session 2: Early English Books Online and the Digital Archive: A Case-Study, Tuesday 23 January, 10.30-1pm

Pip Willcox (Centre for Digital Scholarship, Bodleian Libraries, Oxford)

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—history, language, literature, theology, philosophy, law, music, the history of science, medicine, mathematics, and more.

With the University of Michigan Library, the Bodleian Libraries at the University of Oxford 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 2-hour workshop will introduce both EEBO and its TCP texts, suggesting ways to make the most of this valuable resource. You may find it useful to bring a laptop.

Trainer:

Pip Willcox is the Head of the Centre for Digital Scholarship at the Bodleian Libraries and a Senior Researcher at the University of Oxford e-Research Centre.
