Launching Cambridge Core

cambridge core

Cambridge Core is the new academic platform from Cambridge University Press. It replaces Cambridge Journals Online (CJO), Cambridge Books Online (CBO), Cambridge Histories Online (CHO), Cambridge Companions Online (CCO), Shakespeare Survey Online (SSO) and all partner press ebook content currently hosted on University Publishing Online (UPO) and combines content from them all.

Cambridge Core goes live at midnight on Sunday September 4th; from that point the links in our LibrarySearch records will lead you directly to the full text content on the new platform.

Cambridge Core offers faster and more accurate search capabilities, including extensive facetted searching, UK English and US search terms, title matching to prioritise results, and a search within functionality. The Cambridge Core Reader provides the reading experience of PDF, while maintaining HTML functionality.There is a collapsible side panel for navigation, access to contextualised tables, figures and charts, improved linking to support multimedia content, and improved links to references.

Cambridge Core uses RefME, providing over 7,500 citation styles for you to choose from. You can save searches and content to your bookmarks, for accessing anytime. You can select multiple items of content and perform an action, either downloading as a zipped PDF file, export citations, or save to bookmarks. You can save and send content to Dopbox, Google Drive or your Kindle. Chapter abstracts are being created to help you find specific content in a particular book or subject area.
