Description:

Early Canadiana Online (ECO) provides access to over 80,000 rare books, journals, and government publications printed in the 1600s up to the 1940s, giving documentary evidence of Canada's early days.  Content is in some 21 languages including English, French, 10 First Nations languages, and several European languages.

This primary source database began in 1997 as a pilot project to create an online digital library.  Over three years, 550,000 pages of text were scanned from CIHM's historical microfiche collection.  This part of the collection remains freely accessible to the public.
