EEBO and Early American Imprints

Patrons now can access electronic holdings from two of our online databases through our online catalog. The resources in the Early English Books Online and Early American Imprints Series 1 databases are accessible by simply searching in the catalog.

How does this work? Let’s say you want to read Abraham Booth’s Glad Tidings to Perishing Sinners from the comfort of your own home. You can use your home computer to visit the catalog and search using the keywords Abraham Booth Perishing Sinners.

The catalog will bring up several results, including one that has a link in the “More Info” column. Click on this link, agree to the copyright conditions, and you will be redirected to a page from which you can read the full text of the book without the side effect of actually smelling that old book smell.
