dcsimg Information Site - Early European Books

ProQuest's Early European Books database has now moved to the powerful, newly-enhanced ProQuest platform.

While the legacy version of this database will be available to access until the end of 2018, you can start to use the new version immediately. The new version can be accessed here.

With its clean interface and responsive design, the ProQuest platform delivers a modern research experience that guides users' discovery, access and management of rich, diverse content sources. The Early European Books database is more discoverable as users are able to cross-search its content along with scholarly journals, news, historical documents and other relevant sources.
