Early Americas Digital Archive

Description: 

The Early Americas Digital Archive (EADA) is an online database "of electronic texts and links to texts originally written in or about the Americas from 1492 to approximately 1820". EADA is an open resource developed for public research and teaching purposes. EADA was developed with the intention of serving as a "long-term and inter-disciplinary project committed to exploring the intersections between traditional humanities research and digital technologies". Encoded using TEI, the EADA database has a high searchability function, allowing researchers to browse under "specific terms such as author, title, and subject, within and across the texts".
