On Tuesday April 12th from 12:40-2:00 in the Poetry Center, Professor Douglas Pfeiffer shall hold an informal seminar on how to make practical use of two databases available from University Libraries on a trial basis — Early English Books Online (EEBO) and Literature Online (LION). All are invited. If you are interested but are already familiar with EEBO and/or LION, by all means still attend. Your input will be most welcome.
Interested parties are encourage to both to explore these resources on your own and to raise awareness among your colleagues and students about SBU’s current subscription. These databases are considered by many scholars to be crucial – indeed, indispensable – to many quadrants of literature.
