Oxford Bibliographies Online
Oxford University Press has a stellar reputation in the academic community for providing scholarly works in many subject areas, and in the last few years has expanded its endeavors by providing online access to many of these resources. Oxford Bibliographies Online (OBO) was created to help researchers find reliable, peer-reviewed sources quickly for their research projects. It directs them to the most important sources for specialized topics, and unlike online catalogs or bibliographic databases, each annotated source is evaluated by experts in the subject area. This database could be valuable for disciplines without research methodology texts and could also have the added value of serving as a collection development tool for librarians. OBO is organized by broad subject modules that contain individual entries. Current subject modules include Biblical Studies, Buddhism, Classics, Criminology, Islamic Studies, Social Work, Philosophy, Renaissance and Reformation, and Atlantic History. It would be relevant for Social Science and Humanities disciplines such as History, Philosophy, English, Social Work, Criminology, Art History, Classics, and Religious Studies. Oxford Bibliographies Online is priced by module; institutions can purchase an annual subscription or perpetual access.
