Digitized directly from the UMI Early English Books microform, Early English Books Online (EEBO) presents over 125,000 literary and historical classics as they appeared in their original format. Users can see the first printed edition of the Canterbury Tales or view Galileo’s telescopic discoveries. Now in electronic format, this vast body of retrospective material can be searched quickly by a broad base of users, from undergraduates to scholars. Early English Books Online contains over 22 million digital images of virtually every work printed in the English language as well as works printed in Great Britain and its dependencies from 1473-1700 in any language. In addition, The WSU Libraries participates in the Text Creation Partnership, an ongoing project to provide full-text searching capabilities to 25,000 digitized texts in EEBO. In 2019, Early English Books Online migrated to the new ProQuest platform.
