Oxford Bibliographies is a new e-Resource available from Marymount College Library that helps researchers quickly identify the most important writings on hundreds of topics.
With all the information that one can quickly find on a topic, one of the biggest challenges researchers face is knowing where to start. What is considered essential reading, those books and articles that break new ground and are fundamental to understanding the contours of a topic of inquiry? Oxford Bibliographies is a collection of annotated bibliographies on hundreds of topics in five broad subject areas: biblical studies, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and education.
The subject areas include a growing list of key topics in their respective fields of study. Each of these topical entries gives the reader overviews of the topic as well as an understanding of various sub-topics. Most importantly, the entries provide an annotated bibliography for all aspects of the topic, enabling the researcher to quickly learn which works are considered seminal and why. Links to the library's catalog make it easy to find the cited works at Marymount or to borrow them from another library.
