New Library eresources

We're continually working towards enriching our collections to support the strategic aims of the Faculty of Social Sciences and the wider University through our Strategic Funds for Learning & Teaching, and for Research. We've consulted widely to support these major purchase decisions and we're pleased to announce a range of new resources that are available now, or in the near future.

We'll be blogging in more detail about individual resources throughout the year. New content that will be of particular interest for social sciences include:
  • ENDS Report - environmental news and policy
  • Euromonitor Passport - global business intelligence
  • Gallup Analytics - opinion poll data from around the world
  • Newspaper archives - including Economist, FT, Japan Times, Sunday Times
  • OECD iLibrary - additional content
  • Oxford Scholarship Online - additional content
We would be very interested to hear about the impact of these resources on research or learning, so if you have any evidence or feedback to share, please get in touch.
