This webinar will explore our Historical Texts service. It will highlight the evolution of the service, both in terms of content and functionality.
Historical Texts brings together four significant collections for the first time:
- Early English Books Online (EEBO)
- Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO)
- British Library 19th Century collection
- UK Medical Heritage Library (UKMHL) collection
As Historical Texts continues to evolve, this webinar will provide you with an opportunity to learn about the new and exciting features and content the service now offers and hear about our plans to develop the service further.
One of the most exciting forthcoming developments is an enhancement to our variant spelling search feature, which will be powered by data from the Oxford English Dictionary. You'll also hear about the new ways we are engaging with the community through Live Lab events and the Historical Texts Labs area, as well as the expanded set of support materials now available.
Whether you're an experienced user of Historical Texts looking to see what’s coming next, or you’re thinking about whether the service will help support your research or your institution, this webinar will benefit you.
Jonathan Cates, digital content product manager, will provide some background on Historical Texts, giving an overview of the different collections.
Susan Anderton, service manager (Historical Texts and Journal Archives) will showcase some new and forthcoming features, including some striking data visualisation tools, and explain more about the Live Lab events, the Historical Texts Labs area and the expanded support materials.
