Oxford Reference Online

The Albertsons Library is excited to announce the addition of another database to its ever-expanding collection of online resources. Give a big hello to the Oxford Reference Online Premium.

This great reference tool brings together in one place over 175 dictionaries, language reference works, and subject reference works (including Oxford Companions series), as well many other bells and whistles including maps and timelines. What is magical is that you are able to search across all the Oxford titles in this collection at once. So you can locate multiple entries on your topic. Sweet!

Examples of far-ranging titles available this database includes:

  • Oxford Guide to People and Places of the Bible
  • The New Encyclopedia of Birds
  • Dictionary of Chemistry
  • Dictionary of Economics
  • Oxford-Hachette Concise French Dictionary
  • The Oxford Companion to the Garden
  • Dictionary of Environment and Conservation
  • Concise Oxford Companion to Irish Literature
  • Oxford Dictionary of Islam
  • The Oxford Companion to Twentieth-Century Literature in English
  • The Oxford Companion to Women’s Writing in the United States
  • Oxford Dictionary of Byzantium
A complete list of titles (we are talking a lot of good stuff) is available here: http://www.oxfordreference.com/pages/Subjects_and_Titles__2F

To access this amazing resource, point your mouse to the Albertsons Library database page, then select “O” (for Oxford, of course) from the A-Z list… and away you go!

What do you want to know? Odds are you will FIND IT in the Oxford Reference Online Premium database.
