We have a trial of Electronic Enlightenment, from Oxford University Press, until 8th June 2013.
To access this trial go to http://www.e-enlightenment.com/.
For off-campus access, use AppsAnywhere. If we acquired this resource we would link to it via EZproxy as usual.
Electronic Enlightenment is the most wide-ranging online collection of edited correspondence of the early modern period, linking people across Europe, the Americas and Asia from the early 17th to the mid-19th century — reconstructing one of the world's great historical “conversations”.
Electronic Enlightenment includes 60,647 historical documents. Listen in on the first global social network as 7,476 historical figures discuss everything from religious tolerance to animal rights, vulcanology to classical archeology, economic modelling to celebrity culture.
After trying Electronic Enlightenment, please leave your comments below. You can choose the anonymous option to comment without needing to have a Blogger account, but it helps if you include your name in your feedback so that we can follow up on comments.
