The Copac+ESTC Trial Interface allows a combined search of the Copac database plus the English Short Title Catalogue at the British Library. The records retrieved from ESTC are merged into a single result set with the results from the Copac database. In the Copac ‘Main search’ screen ESTC is included in the ‘Libraries’ list field. Thus it is possible to restrict a search to ESTC alone, or with one or more other libraries eg. ESTC and the Register of Preservation Surrogates. The ESTC catalogue includes details of materials published between c.1473 and 1800, largely English language publications from Britain and America.
The trial interface can be accessed from the Copac home page
