"The ranges of sources of all this material boggled my mind. Yes, some of it is from mainstream publications, but so much of it was from rare, hard-to-find sources that I gained an appreciation for the time and effort it's taken to assemble these vast digitized collections."— Library Journal
"My review of the publisher's ECCO (LJ 5/15/04) said, 'The contents, scope, and accessibility of the Eighteenth Century Collections Online are astonishing. Enthusiastically recommended for all academic, public, and research libraries serving serious literary scholarship.' Gale is happily guilty of having another such paragon in the works. The rare material, the powerful yet uncomplicated search mechanism, and the added-value subject indexing stand out here. As the modules are released, all academic, public, and research libraries serving serious literary, historical, and interdisciplinary scholars should consider acquiring these archives."— Library Journal
"The scope of this digitization project makes it a significant research resource for both scholars and undergraduates. There are several benefits to this scope: the sheer size of the collections; the geographic range including comparative materials from various cultures; and the variety of types of documents including a significant amount of unpublished material...The new platform tools developed for NCCO are impressive and should be useful to scholars as well as students. These include the browse features for "Exploring Collections," the search within results features, text analysis tools, and sophisticated image viewing tools."— eDesiderata, Center for Research Libraries
