Richey, Debora J.
The Eighteenth Century Short Title Catalogue (ESTC) on compact disc provides access to nearly 300,000 printed materials from Britain and the British colonies from 1701 to 1800. The file contains a wide variety of materials (laws, almanacs, posters, catalogs, directories, verses, monographs, advertisements, and flyers) in all languages, and covers materials printed anywhere in the world in English. Compiled from the holdings of over 1,000 libraries, the ESTC also includes a printed listing of the locations of materials and contributing libraries. This guide identifies access points, and provides directions for searching the file. Sample search strategies are presented; the browse searching feature is described; sample records are displayed; and saving and downloading files are explained. (SLD)
