Identifying Published Material at the LWL Not Held Elsewhere
While we cannot point to a comprehensive way to ascertain whether a text published during the eighteenth century at the LWL is not held elsewhere and thus not digitized in a major database like ECCO, we can say that searching on the phrase "not in ESTC" will get a many of the published texts uniquely held here.
In addition, extra-illustrated volumes, texts with annotations, manuscripts, and drawings are all considered unique.
Databases (find databases that include journal and e-book collections; primary sources such as archives and personal papers; government documents and statistics; image, sound and video collections;abstracts and Indexing services)
Quicksearch unites several search services under one discovery interface.
The services initially targeted for this discovery interface include:
the main Library catalog (Orbis), where you will find books and other material held in the Yale University Library. This section is called Books+.
the Law Library catalog (Morris), where you will find books and other material held in the Yale Lillian goldman Law Library (also in Books+).
licensed e-resources, where you will find journal articles, newspaper articles, dissertations and other material (in Articles+).
Quicksearch will eventually include search results from other sources, including the library web site.
In Quicksearch Books+Advanced Search, highlight Location of collection (Lewis Walpole Library)before you enter search terms. You can also set limits by Format to select Books, Archives and Manuscripts, Images, etc. and Date(s).
Search in Books+, then refine after you search to limit to Location: Lewis Walpole Library. You can also then limit to Format: Images, Books, Manuscripts, or whatever you need. Click or tap on the + signs after other facets to see further options for limiting your search.
