Literary Scholarship and More From Oxford
by Barbara Quint
Authoritative sourcing is critical in humanities scholarship, and few institutions in the world are more respected than Oxford University.

Embedded in the critical editions are some 12,000 texts covering the period 1485-1660. A freely available master index called the Oxford Index will be available as a discovery service on the open web. This month OUP also launched significantly re-engineered versions of the Oxford Handbooks Online and Oxford Reference.
