Database of the Month

In mid 2018, Ohioans received access to 12 new resources. This month's featured new database is Oxford Research Encyclopedias.  The encyclopedias offer long-form overview articles written, peer-reviewed, and edited by leading scholars. Each of the 25 distinct encyclopedias cover both foundational and cutting-edge topics in order to develop, over time, an anchoring knowledge base for major areas of research across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Find more detailed information here.

If you have questions about these resources, please make an appointment with Assistant Director Rebecca Wilden at 419-562-7327, ext. 106.
