Barry or Fred may have already mentioned this, so apologies if I'm repeating.
But I have just learned today of a project to provide complete digital
searchable access to every published item in America from 1639 to 1800. It is

Not that it's free. My small-college library was quoted a prepublication
offer of about $30,000, plus annual maintenance fee of $1000.
