Eighteenth Century Collections Online

Eighteenth Century Collections Online

A university that does not have ECCO is not a serious player in eighteenth-century British and American studies—in literature or in anything else. Any institution giving graduate degrees in eighteenth-century subjects reduces itself to below minor-league status if it does not provide ECCO to its students—and is putting its publishing faculty at a crippling disadvantage.

Rob Hume

English Professor- Penn State University

ECCO is:

  • Widely held with over 500 institutions have access across the globe
  • Considered essential for 18th Century studies
    • VERY cross-disciplinary in nature; appeals to all departments
    • “ECCO Native” PhD’s
    • Scholarly standard: 18th century research must apply ECCO to ensure thoroughness, comprehensiveness, and completeness
    • Used as a recruiting tool for top faculty and graduate students
    • Allows researchers to undertake previously unfeasible projects
    • Comprehensive – inclusion policy driven by ESTC
  • Both students, faculty and library staff find the product useful for a wide range of research projects
    • Persistent URL’s for every page of the collection facilitate inclusion in e-course packs and bookmarking
    • Identification & comparison of multiple editions of the same work
    • Learn what contemporaries wrote about each other’s works
