New Resources News

Early English Books Online (EEBO) platform change

EEBO has moved from a Chadwyck-Healey site to a new ProQuest platform.

This change has just been announced so the individual EEBO titles in MultiSearch still have Chadwyck-Healey links at present.   The old site will continue to be available until December.

There is a support page which has more information about the change.   One of the features of the new platform is that it allows cross-searching with other databases such as Literature Online.
