We at Oxford University Press are pleased to announce an important new enhancement to Oxford Scholarship Online: starting today, all books on OSO can now be purchased individually, on a title by title basis, by institutions worldwide.
This new purchase model allows for greater flexibility in gaining access to Oxford’s scholarly works, and enables libraries and institutions to build their own customizable collections. Customers can now purchase individual titles from the complete database of over 10,000 OUP academic titles spanning 20 different subject areas, covering the humanities, social sciences, medicine, and law. This title-by-title purchasing model nicely complements the very successful collection model. In response to the differing needs for specific titles, and to give the most flexibility our customers require, the individual books may be purchased at single, three, or unlimited user access models.
Oxford Scholarship Online is also publishing titles more regularly – now 10 times a year – allowing users access to Oxford’s online scholarly publishing quicker than ever before. This will bring the print and online publication dates in much closer alignment, which will also allow for better integration with approval plans.
Rebecca Seger, Director of Institutional Sales for OUP, says “These two enhancements are significant milestones in the evolution of Oxford Scholarship Online. Librarians have voiced their very clear desire to have both developments, which help streamline their acquisitions process – and we have listened. Our goal is to make it simple to order and manage Oxford Scholarship Online purchases, and this should be a vast improvement for our customers.”
