The aim of this project was to offer access to digitised page images of substantial runs of certain 18th- and 19th-century journals over the Internet and evaluate this service. See What Is ILEJ for more information. The project finished in 1999, and no additional material will be added.

Frames and JavaScript are used for browsing and searching. The digitised images are best viewed with an 800x600 or higher resolution monitor. Some journal pages can be enlarged within the browser. A magnifying glass icon with a "+" indicates those pages.
