4 Oxford Bibliographies Online is a tool designed to help busy researchers find reliable sources of information in half the time by directing them to exactly the right chapter, book, website, archive or data set they need for their research. As of May 2010, it has 7 modules: Atlantic History, Classical Studies, Criminology, Islamic Studies, Philosophy, Renaissance & Reformation, and Social Work. Each subject launches with between 50-100 articles or entries, which is equivalent to a 4-volume print encyclopedia. In each subject module, leading scholars from institutions around the world have produced a literary guide to the most important and significant sources in an area of study that they know best. All entries receive multiple peer reviews and editorial board vetting to provide reliable and balanced coverage.

5 It is selective, rather than exhaustive. Oxford Bibliographies Online differs from most bibliographical resources in several ways: It provides expert recommendations with critical supportive text and annotation. The full context allows for understanding connections between citations. It includes cataloging of non-print material, especially online resources. Linking on multiple levels facilitates movement to other resources, whether online or available through a library’s catalogue.

6 Navigating the site is simple. Select the module or modules you are interested in, then either use the search box at the top right, or browse to see the contents of that module.



9 Each topic has a broadly similar table of contents, with an introduction, a list of introductory works, general overviews, data sources (if relevant) and then specific sub-topics. In the right column, you can navigate to other topics in the module,… …editorially chosen related entries,… …and the other modules.
