2012 sees the launch of a major new publishing initiative from Oxford University Press – Oxford Scholarly Editions Online (OSEO) –an interlinked collection of authoritative Oxford editions of major works from the humanities, being made available online for the first time. The launch content, consisting of the complete text of more than 170 scholarly editions of material written between 1485 and 1660, constitutes the cornerstone of research in the fields of English Literature, as well as Philosophy, History, and Religion. The launch of OSEO and the movement of Scholarly Editions into the digital realm will generate new ideas, research journeys and expectations for scholars, students, and librarians and this webinar provides the perspectives of two key voices involved in the project on the impact this will have on librarians and the academic community.

    The once and future wrinkle in time? :)

  2. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. Nevertheless think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this website could
    undeniably be one of the best in its niche.
    Amazing blog!
