Oxford Scholarship Online EBA

The University Library has arranged full-text access to the complete Oxford Scholarship Online ebook collections in the following subjects: Classical Studies, History, Linguistics, Literature, Music, Philosophy, Religion, Sociology, Business & Management, Economics & Finance, & Political Science. The 7,515 new ebooks are immediately available from Oxford Scholarship Online.

This evidence based purchase (EBA) scheme includes all Oxford University Press monographs published in the subjects listed above across all publication years. This collection will grow as new titles are published. This extended access complements existing owned collections of OSO monographs (up to 2009) and the Law collection which is currently subscribed to by the Squire Law Library.

The catalogue records for these Oxford Scholarship titles are loaded into LibrarySearch and Cambridge librarians will be able to identify them once they are tagged with OSO EBA trial (hopefully from the beginning of September 2015). Oxford Scholarship Online ebooks are available both on and off-campus (using a Raven login) with unlimited concurrent access and offer chapter printing and downloads.

Available titles are indicated with a green unlocked padlock icon as illustrated in the following screenshot.

If you would like to recommend titles for purchase, please send details in an email to Dr Gotthelf Wiedermann in the University Library (ghw21@cam.ac.uk) before the end of May 2016.

The ebooks@cambridge team and the University Library are keen to know what you think about opening up access to these Oxford Scholarship Online subject collections, please send any comments or questions to ebooks@lib.cam.ac.uk or ghw21@cam.ac.uk.

You may browse for titles alphabetically, by subject, or search for a known title, and you can filter your search by publication type. Wiley Online Library allows users to select and read chapters online, or print or save them as PDFs. There is unlimited concurrent access.

Please note that Wiley etextbooks are not included in this collection.

The access will continue until the 30th April 2015 in the first instance. This is a usage based purchase model which means at the end of this period it is likely that the most popular titles in the collection will be retained.
