The Bodleian Libraries have signed a new agreement with Oxford University Press (OUP) to significantly increase reader access to all current OUP online content.
For Americanists this means we now have full access to two more major electronic resources covering the United States: the Oxford African American Studies Center and SocialExplorer, as well as a significant increase in the number of ebooks from both OUP and 14 partner university presses, including Chicago and Yale. Overall, you can now access over 20,000 e-books, plus extra databases; a considerable increase from the amount of content previously accessible, which was selected on a case-by-case basis by subject librarians.
Among the new collections fully available are the Oxford Scholarly Editions, the British Academy Publications and the Oxford Language Dictionaries. The full collections in Oxford Scholarship Online, Oxford Handbooks Online and Oxford Bibliographies Online are also accessible. Links to the e-books and databases can be found in SOLO, the Oxford Libraries’ online catalogues, and OxLIP+, the Libraries’ online information platform.
The Oxford African American Studies Center provides a comprehensive collection of scholarship on African American and African history and culture, including over 10,000 articles from major reference works such as the Encyclopedia of African American History and the African American National Biography, as well as hundreds of primary sources, images, maps and data. >Further details.
SocialExplorer provides access to a wealth of demographic data for the United States from 1790 to the present day, presented as easy-to-navigate maps and tables. >Further details.
