A new COPAC+ESTC Trial Interface carries out a combined search of the COPAC database plus the English Short Title Catalogue (ESTC) database at the British Library. The records retrieved from ESTC are merged into a single result set with the results from the COPAC database. In the COPAC 'Main search' screen ESTC is included in the 'Libraries' list field. Thus it is possible to restrict a search to ESTC alone, or combine it with one or more other libraries, eg ESTC and the Register of Preservation Surrogates.
