ECCO - Eighteenth Century Collections Online


ECCO includes significant English-language and foreign-language titles printed in the United Kingdom during the 18th century, along with important works from the Americas.

ECCO-TCP is a partnership with Gale, part of Cengage Learning, to produce highly accurate, fully-searchable, SGML/XML-encoded texts from among the 150,000 titles available in the Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO) database.

ECCO includes every significant English-language and foreign-language title printed in the United Kingdom during the 18th century, along with thousands of important works from the Americas. The database contains more than 32 million pages of text and over 205,000 individual volumes in all. In addition, ECCO natively supports OCR-based full-text searching of this corpus.

With the support of more than 35 libraries, the TCP keyed and encoded 2,231 ECCO-TCP texts. In cooperation with Gale Cengage, these texts have already been made freely available to the public.

This keyboarded and encoded edition of the work described above is co-owned by the institutions providing financial support to the Early English Books Online Text Creation Partnership.
