Trial access is now enabled to the Historical Texts platform until 31 May 2017 via the following link:
Historical Texts brings together Early English Books Online (EEBO), Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO) and 65,000 texts from the British Library 19th Century collection.
Via this platform is also included the UK Medical Heritage Library collection (UKMHL) which is Open Access and accessible here.
The main purpose of this trial is to review the appropriateness of the platform for Cambridge users. An overview of the collections included in the platform can be found here. Note that Cambridge currently has access to EEBO and ECCO on separate (publisher) platforms, but not to the British Library 19th Century collection.
You can contact the Historical Texts platform directly via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) during the trial for any queries.
