OUP is running an online demonstration/training session on Electronic Enlightenment next Wednesday 4nd June at 10.00 (UK time).
What is the Electronic Enlightenment?
EE has as its foundation major printed editions of correspondence centred on the “long 18th century”. From the correspondence itself, the supporting critical apparatus and additional research, the project has developed a set of information categories that creates an intricate network of connections between the documents and enriches Electronic Enlightenment as a digital academic resource. Through such interconnecting and contextualizing categories, Electronic Enlightenment is able to offer the user an unrivalled range and depth of approaches to the documents and people included here.
To date, most of the content of Electronic Enlightenment has been provided by printed editions of correspondences from academic presses worldwide; nevertheless, it is not simply an aggregation of these editions. Rather it is a database of individual letters and correspondents that can be searched or browsed as a complete collection.
The webinar is open to any library users and is free of charge. It will take about 40-45 minutes and we will look at different search options, features and practical uses of the resource. There will also be an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have.
OUP uses WebEx conferencing software and, unless your network has restrictions, you can access the session anywhere – all you need is a computer with an Internet connection and a speaker.
