Free 18th c books

I saw this announcement today in the University of Michigan's internal daily bulletin. I haven't tried to actually request anything yet.

Quote:
The U-M Library announced the opening to the public of 2,229 searchable, keyed-text editions of books from Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO).

ECCO, a research database that contains every significant English- and foreign-language title printed in the United Kingdom during the 18th century as well as important works from the Americas, is published by Gale, part of Cengage Learning.

For the moment, therefore, freely available to the public means we’ll send the texts to anyone who asks, as soon as we can, and they’re free to do what they like with them.
