Current Migration Functionality Updates

“Include variant forms/spellings for search terms” option has been added and moved to be more prominently placed beneath the main search box.
This allows a user to include or exclude the variants for the search terms; depending on the institution’s preference setting this will be set to a default state of checked or unchecked.

User-added image

Once checked, the variants included in your search can be viewed on the search results page in a panel below the search box. In case a user wants to run the same search without variants from the search results then there is a link ‘Search without variants’ in the panel by which the same can be achieved.

User-added image

Search term navigation/Jump to first hit has been added.

This will allow advancing to the first hit and then onwards to the next hit in the TCP text.

Early Modern Books

Early Modern Books

Early English Books Online can be viewed in isolation or as part of Early Modern Books (EMB), which provides an integrated search and browse experience across both Early European Books (EEB) and EEBO. Materials can be searched and/or browsed by the following, amongst other options:

Searching both English printed titles alongside European titles could provide new discoveries of works that have travelled geographically and linguistically across Europe.

EEBO and EMB, alongside any other databases that your institution has access to, are selected via the Change Databases menu in the ProQuest Platform’s main navigation, which appears on every page.
