Overview

The Bodleian is partnering with the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) to carry out a benchmarking study and subsequent analysis of EEBO-TCP, and will engage with stakeholders through interviews, workshops, and focus groups, in order to explore fully the various issues which will have a bearing on EEBO-TCP’s sustainability.
