Brightenburg, Cindy
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v28 n1 p1-8 2016
The use of digital books is diverse, ranging from casual reading to in-depth primary source research. Digitization of early English printed books in particular, has provided greater access to a previously limited resource for academic faculty and researchers. Internet Archive, a free, internet website and Early English Books Online, a subscription based database are two such resources. This study compares the scope, coverage and visual quality of the two book databases to determine the usability of each for faculty and researchers.
