Early English Books Online - Text Creation Partnership (EEBO-TCP)

Alternative Titles
EEBO-TCP
EEBO
Description

The Early English Books Online Text Creation Partnership began in 1999 as an innovative cooperative relationship between ProQuest, the University libraries of Michigan and Oxford, and the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) to convert 25,000 books from ProQuest’s EEBO image product into fully-searchable, TEI-compliant SGML/XML texts.

In subsequent years, the EEBO-TCP has added 149 more individual partner institutions. Together, this partnership has funded the text conversion process (whereby digital page images are double-keyed by vendors, marked-up and reviewed by production staff at Michigan and Oxford, and then delivered to the web in their new form).

In March of 2008, the TCP announced its intention to initiate a second phase of EEBO-TCP production, with the aim of converting the remaining 44,000 unique monographs in the EEBO collection. To date, more than 60 individual institutions have joined this second partnership and production is underway.

The EEBO corpus consists of the works represented in the English Short Title Catalog I and II (based on the Pollard & Redgrave and Wing short title catalogs), as well as the Thomason Tracts. Together these trace the history of English thought from the first book printed in English in 1475 through 1700. The content covers literature, philosophy, politics, religion, geography, science and all other areas of human endeavor. The assembled collection of 125,000 volumes is a mainstay for understanding the development of Western culture in general and the Anglo-American world in particular. The STC collections have always found strong proponents in English, linguistics, and history but the collections are all encompassing in coverage, including core texts in religious studies, art, women's studies, history of science, law, and music.
