Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO) – Text Creation Partnership (TCP)

ECCO-TCP is a partnership with Gale, part of Cengage Learning, to produce highly accurate, fully-searchable, SGML/XML-encoded texts from among the titles available in the Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO) database.

ECCO includes books and directories, Bibles, sheet music, sermons, advertisements, and works by many well-known and lesser-known authors. There are works by women writers, collections on the French Revolution, and numerous editions of the works of Shakespeare.

Multiple editions of each individual work are offered to enable scholars to make textual comparisons of the works. The majority of works in ECCO are in the English language but there are also works printed in Dutch, French, German, Italian, Latin, Spanish and Welsh.
