Ms. DeGroat is currently evaluating Oxford Handbooks Online to see if it might fill a research gap in the library’s online toolbox. Subject handbooks provide scholarly overviews about topics that can often serve as a bridge between reading articles from encyclopedias, newspapers, and magazines about a topic and understanding scholarly studies in that discipline.
MLWGS students and teachers can access Oxford Handbooks Online through April 22nd. Although this free trial includes all subjects, a school subscription would be for a specific subject or subjects, so if you give this a test run, it would be VERY helpful if you could jot down the title of specific handbooks that prove useful. You may submit feedback about this resource @ http://bit.ly/tryhandbooks.
Our school login for this free trial is available in the library and on the Student Information course in itslearning.
