Trial database: Oxford Bibliographies Online

Through November 1, University Libraries has a trial to Oxford Bibliographies Online.

OBO is a unique reference tool in which 95 broad subject categories are broken down into smaller and smaller subject areas, and individual books and articles important to the study of each subject is listed and described. Users can start their exploration with a keyword search or by browsing through a broad subject area, such as Cinema and Media Studies.

Each Oxford Bibliographies article, written and reviewed by top scholars in the field, is rich with citations and annotations, expert recommendations, and narrative pathways through the most useful and important works on the topic in question. View the anatomy of an OBO article here.
