For everyone in the University
Bibliographical databases are the best tools for identifying content in a subject area or by an individual. In this task you explore a modular, subject-based bibliographical database, Oxford Bibliographies On-Line.
OBO is different from most bibliographical databases, because its content has been selected by an academic panel, so you are guided to the best available scholarship across a wide variety of subjects. It covers classic and up-to-date monographs, collections, datasets, articles and web-sites. Each article includes an introduction written by a top scholar in the field.
This task will give you a flavour of how OBO might be used in your research. You can try this task on your own, although it was designed to be done in a classroom with a teacher to support you.
You will need a web browser installed on your computer. Talk to your IT support person about this.
