Eighteenth Century Collections Online contains over 180,000 titles (200,000 volumes) and more than 32 million pages, making ECCO the premier and irreplaceable resource for eighteenth-century research. Users of ECCO Part I and Part II can full-text search the collection via an intuitive user interface. In addition, MARC record/metadata enhancements, a research guide section for undergraduates with contextual essays and chronology, an image gallery, and a key documents section facilitate discovery and study.
Institutions with access to ECCO and Early English Books Online (EEBO) from ProQuest are able to cross-search both collections. Users can extend their searches across centuries of publications, from the first book printed in the English language through to the folios of Shakespeare and the classics of Defoe.
