New resource on trial: Oxford World’s Classics

The Library has trial access to the new Oxford World’s Classics online platform until March 21st 2021.

This provides access to 301 novels and other works from the 18th and 19th centuries from around the world, including novels by writers such as Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Emile Zola and Fyodor Dostoevsky, as well as works such as Charles Darwin’s On The Origin of Species.

Each work is accompanied by extensive notes, introductions and commentaries. You can browse or search the collection in various ways (for example: by author, subject, keyword or time period).

During the trial, the books won’t be individually catalogued on Library Search, so you will need to access them via the OWC platform. The trial ends on March 21st 2021. To help us evaluate it, please email us your feedback, or leave a reply on this blog.
