Oxford Bibliographies in the News

Oxford Bibliographies represents a new direction in online research…highly recommended, especially for larger institutions, and for those with programs within the modules’ subjects; lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers, general readers.” –CHOICE

“Seems to promise a great deal of happy reading for serious researchers…reading through the bibliography online, I felt like I’d enjoyed a series of conversations with trusted professors and really good librarians.” –The New Yorker’s Book Bench site
