Our Resource of the Month choice for July

Each month, one of our Subject Librarians chooses an electronic resource which they feel will be of interest to you.

July’s Resource of the Month has been selected by Sarah Rhodes,

Sarah’s choice is AllAfrica. It was chosen because, despite being freely available online, the Bodleian Libraries has a subscription to the archive from 1996 to date, providing access to over two million articles and documents from allAfrica.com.

Resource Overview

AllAfrica is a voice of, by and about Africa – aggregating, producing and distributing news and information from over 140 African news organizations, as well as documents and releases from several hundred governmental, nongovernmental and international institutions, and their own reporters.  AllAfrica’s multi-channel platform is the only independent, comprehensive pan-African news source, with unrivalled reach and reputation to both an African and global public.

Where can you access the resource

The AllAfrica archive is available to access via SOLO. A Single-Sign-On (SSO) is required to access this database, so is restricted to Oxford University students and staff members.
