The Oxford Handbooks series brings together the world’s leading scholars to write articles that survey the current state of scholarship in their field. The articles review the key issues, reveal original arguments and concepts, and set the agenda for new research.

The collection will be searchable in LibrarySearch from early August and will be available to view on and off campus. Off campus access will be via Raven login.

The University Wi-Fi network has been extended to the city’s public spaces, allowing online access just in time for the Tour de France in Cambridge next week.

High-speed Internet access points have been placed on Parker’s Piece and along central streets. If you already use eduroam or Lapwing you should automatically connect to the network. Members of the public will also be able to use the internet while out and about thanks to a free public Wi-FI pilot scheme.

To find out more and to see a map showing the areas where academics, students and staff can now access eduroam and Lapwing please visit the University Information Services website: http://www.uis.cam.ac.uk/features/wireless-network-launch.
