New e-Resources

Oxford Digital Reference Shelf

With an emphasis on history, literature, and the arts, this new purchase brings 24 authoritative Oxford reference works to our expanding eBook collection. Fully searchable, with good printing and linking capabilities, this is an easy to use collection with unlimited access.

All of our eBooks are listed in the Library Catalog, so searching for any title or topic will find relevant ODRS titles. You can also do a search for “Oxford Digital Reference Shelf” and all the titles will be displayed. Finally, if you want to limit a topical search to this collection only, try our eBooks search page, and limit to Oxford Digital Reference Shelf in the Series drop-down menu.

This subscription is part of the ERALL grant which recently brought us over 4000 eBrary titles, over 1800 titles from Oxford Scholarship Online, and that last year gave us 8800 Springer eBooks, Wiley Electronic Major Reference Works and Blackwell Reference Online. ERALL (Electronic Resources Academic Library Link) is a joint project of the eight UGC funded libraries which has successfully secured one-time funding specifically for the purchase of English language electronic books.
