EEBO Interactions: A social network for Early English Books Online (http://eebo-interactions.chadwyck.com)

ProQuest launched EEBO Interactions, a social network for Early English Books Online (EEBO), in April of this year. In the weeks that have elapsed since the resource was first made available it has already shown itself to be a valuable forum for the exchange of insights and ideas among scholars.

EEBO Interactions allows its registered users to:

* comment upon works and authors in EEBO
* debate issues connected with early printed books
* correct and improve existing attribution and dating information
* highlight and review new scholarship
* ask teaching and research questions
* share knowledge
* analyse texts
* link to related resources on the web and
* interact with other EEBO users around the world

EEBO Interactions aims to provide scholars with new ways of engaging with EEBO and with the community of early modernists who use EEBO in teaching and research, providing a forum for the discussion of works and authors found in the database. Registered users can share commentary, queries, contextual material and links relating to works and authors represented in EEBO, and edit and expand upon existing contributions by other contributors.

Direct messaging between participants is also supported.

The EEBO Interactions site itself is freely accessible and can be consulted by all users of the internet. The ability to interact with the resource - to add, edit and/or delete submissions - is restricted to its registered users. Registration is open to all authenticated EEBO users and to other scholars on completion of the EEBO Interactions Registration Request form. Moderation of the content of the EEBO Interactions resource will be undertaken by a team of independent editors and will occur after submissions are posted.

If you are interested in becoming an moderator for EEBO Interactions, please contact the EEBO Webmaster (at http://eebo.chadwyck.com/about/webmaster.htm) or write directly to Peter White ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
