Dear List:

You can now search all the text titles for EEBO in 18thConnect 
(http://www.18thConnect.org), using our search page. We have also loaded
into 18thConnect the freely-available 25,174 full texts that were
hand-typed by the Text Creation Partnership.

If you would like to search only the documents for which full text is
available, as opposed to just author, title, date, then scroll down on the
search page a little farther and click on "Full Text Only."

The data-miners among you can get the same search capacity by downloading
all the EEBO-TCP texts from the Oxford Text Archive's github page and
performing your own searches or other operations on them. 18thConnect's
searches are run by the Lucene Search engine.
