Oxford Bibliographies offers authoritative research guidance. Each topical component is comprised of highly specific annotated bibliographic guides. For instance, the Atlantic History component includes African Religion and Culture, Merchants' Networks, and Texts, Printing and the Book. The bibliographies identify the best work available on a topic, whether it is in the form of a chapter, a book, an article, a website, an archive, or a dataset. Each bibliography is introduced by contextual commentary. Annotations indicate why a particular work is valuable. When fully integrated into our holdings, bibliographies will be findable by using EVERYTHING. Open URLs and full-text DOIs link citations that comprise bibliographies to our catalog and to WorldCat, Google Books, and more. To access this feature, click the + to the left of the line beneath each citation (Find this resource). Bibliographies are updated on a regular basis and the number of bibliographies under each topical heading continues to grow.
