AbstractThe authors’ experiences in launching a new course at Rutgers University is described. The new honors course resulted from a collaboration between the History Department and Rutgers University Libraries (RUL) in which academic instruction, a unique source of digital books, and web/internet technology were brought together to provide a new learning experience for undergraduates. Students used the Early English Books Online (EEBO) collection at RUL and were challenged to learn as much as possible in a single semester about some facet of early English advice manuals. The course objectives, technology platform, and student experiences are discussed.
