Title : Early printed books project : libraries outside the Bodleian

Description :
The website of the Early Printed Books project describes the aims of the project (for which funding ended in 2002). The project originated in order to raise general awareness of collections of early printed books held by the Oxford colleges. During the project, foreign books printed before 1800 and held in Oxford libraries outside the Bodleian, were catalogued and added to OLIS (Oxford University's electronic library catalogue) and COPAC (the national combined electronic library catalogue). Catalogue records include author and title information, and also elements to assist researchers, such as details of: editors; translators; illustrators; engravers; printers and publishers; date and place of publication; and subject. This project received funding from the Research Support Libraries Programme (RSLP). The site includes links to resources useful for cataloguers and others interested in early printed books and special collections.
