International Medieval Bibliography (IMB)

Alternative Titles
IMB
Brepolis
Description

The International Medieval Bibliography was founded in 1967 with the support of the Medieval Academy of America, with the aim of providing a comprehensive, current bibliography of articles in journals and miscellany volumes (conference proceedings, essay collections or Festschriften) worldwide. Its editorial staff is based at the Institute for Medieval Studies at the University of Leeds, and the project is supported by over 50 teams of contributors in Europe, North America, Australia and Japan.


The IMB offers an unparalleled tool for medievalists to identify the contents of current work published throughout Europe, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region.

The discipline areas to which the IMB is relevant include Classics, English Language and Literature, History and Archaeology, Theology and Philosophy, Medieval European Languages and Literatures, Arabic and Islamic Studies, History of Education, Art History, Music, Theatre and Performance Arts, Rhetoric and Communication Studies.

A controlled vocabulary: A hierarchical index offers an integrated tree structure comprising some 1,500 subject terms. This allows the user to navigate from nine major conceptual areas through to the specific subject terminology employed in medieval scholarship. A parallel index of places allows step-by-step navigation from major geographical areas to over 50,000 different names of places, regions and geographical features in Europe, North Africa and the Near East.

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.
