Uh oh it’s OHO – what do you think about this free trial?

OHO bannerThe ebooks team have arranged for free trial access for University of Cambridge members to the full content of Oxford Handbooks Online, you can access the platform from here.

The trial period provides access to the Oxford Handbook series in 14 disciplines across the Humanities and Social Sciences, containing in-depth high-level review articles by scholars at the top of their fields. The online articles appear in advance of their print versions, or are born digital, this ensures the most authoritative coverage anywhere.

Subjects covered:

Archaeology, Business and Management, Classical Studies, Criminology and Criminal Justice, Economics and Finance, History, Law, Linguistics, Literature, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology and Religion.

OHO is available both on and off campus (with a Raven login) and the articles and ebooks are offered with unlimited concurrency. Articles can be downloaded as PDFs and you can create your own personal account on the platform to take advantage of further user features such as setting favourite titles and saving searches. For the trial period the catalogue records will not be available in LibrarySearch.

To help you get the most out of this trial there is a useful short video guide to using OHO which is available from here, and the latest content updates can be perused from here.

Free access is due to end on Wednesday 30th April, but in the meantime it would be REALLY useful if you could email the ebooks team with your feedback on OHO, both on the usability of the platform and the content. These comments will be analysed in conjunction with usage statistics and if OHO proves to be a popular resource then selected subject modules may be purchased using the Connell Fund. Please email ebooks@lib.cam.ac.uk with any comments.
