Electronic Enlightenment subscription

I'm pleased to announce that the Libraries have subscribed to the Electronic Enlightenment online resource. Thanks to all of you who sent in your support.

Offered by Oxford University Press, the Electronic Enlightenment is a full text database of correspondence between Enlightenment thinkers in Britain and on the Continent. The more than 53,000 letters are all indexed and include critical notes. EE includes the complete correspondence of Voltaire, Rousseau, Pierre Bayle, and Descartes. Many of the British thinkers also carried on extensive letter-writing with their colleagues in Europe. All letters are fully searchable, and appear in their original language.

Please access at: 

It should currently be available to off-campus users whose computers are configured correctly.
