EEBO is the electronic equivalent of the Early English Books, 1475-1640, the Early English Books, 1641-1700, and the Thomason Tracts microform collections (Microfilm S 1, Microfilm S 1.5, and Microfilm no. 2379 respectively).
EEBO is really a complement to the microfilm collections. The online digitized images were scanned from the microfilm. Higher-resolution images are available in the microfilm editions.
For the later period, see Eighteenth Century Collections Online.
