New online resource: Oxford Reference online

by Debbie

The Library has subscribed to a new electronic resource: Oxford Reference Online

This resource brings together language and subject reference works from one of the world’s biggest reference publishers into a single cross-searchable resource.

The Core Collection contains over 100 dictionary, language reference, and subject reference works published by Oxford University Press. It is a fully-indexed, cross-searchable database of these books, giving subscribers unprecedented access to a comprehensive information resource.

You can find this resource either on the library catalogue or on the databases & e-books page. Access is by IP recognition on campus, or by Athens authentication or the VPN from off campus.

The resource will be available online for a year’s trial period, ending 31 May 2008.
