teaching the restoration/eighteenth century survey with ecco?

[caught between two stools?]

Well, after years of discussion, my institution finally acquired both ECCO and the Burney collection this past week.  And I couldn’t be more pleased.

But this has created a new, though quite wonderful problem for me: I’m teaching a graduate Restoration/Eighteenth-Century Survey course this term (in a few days), and am determined to put these resources to good use.

So I would be interested to hear if anyone out there has taught a survey, especially at the grad level, and found some good uses for ECCO and the Burney collection, in terms of readings, assignments, presentations, and so forth.
