Description: The Eighteenth Century Collections Online [ECCO] provides remote access to 40 million full-text images and text-searchable pages of nearly 180,000 English-language titles and editions (200,000 volumes) published between 1701-1800. It is based on The English Short Title Catalogue, a machine-readable union list of the holdings of the British Library and more than 1,500 university, private, and public libraries worldwide. The most ambitious single digitization project ever undertaken delivers every significant English-language and foreign-language title printed in Great Britain, along with thousands of important works from the Americas. ECCO offers not only full-text searching, but also many levels of meta-data.
