Database On Trial: Oxford Scholarship Online (2005/09/30)

In order to support faculty members and students in their teaching, learning and research, the Library has already acquired a substantial number of electronic databases. To further develop along this line, the Library constantly liaises with database vendors to have their new products tried out by our users before we decide to purchase them or not. The Oxford Scholarship Online is the latest one.


Oxford Scholarship Online (an E-book database) is a cross-searchable library containing the full text of over 980 Oxford University Press books in the areas of economics and finance, philosophy, political science, and religion. There will be at least 200 new and recently-published books added each year. A special feature of this database is that you can also make a subject search and that can link up to the relevant chapters.

You are cordially invited to try out this online database via the campus network until 19th October 2005. Please use the link provided in "Trial Databases" at our web site or directly go to its website at to start searching.

Please kindly give us your comments on this online database on trial at
