Early English Books Online-Text Creation Partnership EEBO-TCP Collections: Navigations

The transcription and textual encoding of nearly 2,000 early English works (1473-1700) for an open access collection on travel-related literature. The collection would also become part of the larger text-encoded collection produced by the Text Creation Partnership in collaboration with Early English Books Online.

Early English Books Online (EEBO) is a commercial product that provides digital facsimiles of more than 125,000 early English books. The Text Creation Partnership (TCP) is a non-profit, library-based effort to produce the corresponding electronic text. The great virtue of EEBO is that it provides a single point of access to rare books housed in libraries around the world. The contribution of the TCP is to transcribe these books into accurate electronic text, that is, to produce a fully searchable digital version of every unique English-language work represented in EEBO, leveraging the EEBO pageimage resource into an invaluable text corpus of around 70,000 works.
