ProQuest Announces Digitization of Early European Books

ProQuest released the first 2 million pages—about 5,800 books—from its digitization project of rare, historical works at the National Library of France (BnF). The fields covered include history, theology, law, physics, and medicine. When it is finished, the project will provide more than 28,000 European books from 1400 to 1700 as fully searchable images.

Works from the BnF “have been among the most requested by scholars,” says Susan Bokern, ProQuest’s VP of product management. It is the fifth major library to participate a digitization project for ProQuest’s Early European Books collection.
