Early European Books is migrating to the ProQuest Platform!

ProQuest is pleased to inform you that Early European Books will be moving from its legacy Chadwyck-Healey interface, to the powerful, newly-enhanced ProQuest Platform, starting in September 2018! With its clean interface and responsive design, the ProQuest platform delivers a modern research experience that guides users’ discovery, access and management of rich, diverse content sources.

New Visualization Tool — An Interactive Historical Map

Newly enhanced metadata has extended search, retrieval and discovery capabilities to deliver an improved user experience for students, scholars, faculty and library staff alike. Through a combination of amending and fully standardizing metadata across Early European Books collections, it's now possible to demonstrate the Place of Publication of the majority of titles as pinpoints on a scalable historical map. The data points may be further filtered by Source Library, Language, USTC Subject Classification and Date of Publication. Clicking on these pinpoints accesses title page thumbnail images beyond which the user may drill down further to the full record. Such functionality works to provide not just a novel means of searching the product but delivers the potential to visualize and interpret its contents in new and exciting ways.
