EBSCO and Oxford University Press Extend Partnership

EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and Oxford University Press (OUP) extended their partnership enabling two additional authoritative resources from OUP, University Press Scholarship Online and Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, to be searchable within EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). Oxford University Press claims to be the world’s largest university press offering content in more than 40 languages for audiences from preschool to secondary level schoolchildren, students to academics, general readers to researchers, and individuals to institutions.

University Press Scholarship Online provides more than 10,000 titles in 24 subject areas from 10 leading university presses. Content includes a balance of classic works of scholarship along with newly published works. The valuable resource also includes book-level and chapter-level records.

Oxford Dictionary of National Biography offers more than 50,000 biographies written by named, specialist authors. The dictionary is the national record of men and women who have shaped British history and culture, worldwide, from the Romans to the 21st century and is overseen by academic editors at Oxford University, U.K., and published by Oxford University Press.

The new agreement between EBSCO and OUP allows EDS users to search University Press Scholarship Online and Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, while mutual customers may further extend their search to access the full text on the Oxford site. Oxford University Press customers may use an EDS CustomLink already created in EBSCOadmin to access full text on the Oxford site.

The EDS Base Index represents content from about 20,000 providers (and growing), which accounts for more than 350,000 publications from the world’s top publishers and information providers. However, because EDS is a custom solution, the complete index to materials for any given customer may be expanded greatly beyond the coverage referenced for the Base Index.
