Summary The Universities of Michigan and Oxford, with the financial support of over seventy libraries worldwide, are creating accurately keyboarded and SGML/XML encoded text editions for a significant portion of the EEBO corpus. Known as the EEBO-Text Creation Partnership (EEBO-TCP), this cooperative academic initiative is producing legible and searchable encoded texts that link to corresponding page images from ProQuest's EEBO product. For students and scholars, this allows immediate search access to the content of thousands of historically significant works, while retaining the cultural context of the original print representation of the material. This database is used together with the Early English Books Online database.
