An important research tool from ESTC/North America and The British Library for scholars interested in the English language, literature, and culture, contains over 400,000 records for items published anywhere in Great Britain or its colonies or in English anywhere from printing's beginnings (1473) through the 18th century -- everything from Shakespeare and the King James Bible to anonymous ballads and broadsides. Previously known as the "Eighteenth-century Short Title Catalogue," ESTC was enhanced and renamed in 1994, with the addition of nearly 75,000 records for works published before 1701.
