Oxford University Press has an international reputation for the quality and diversity of its publishing programme. In addition to publishing over 4,600 new books each year, Oxford is a major provider of online information to libraries worldwide. Our prestigious online resources include extensive databases and e-reference editions. This presentation will focus on the broad band of online resources published by Oxford Online. Our new launch will be "Electronic Enlightenment", a scholarly research project of the University of Oxford, which offers unrivalled access to the web of correspondence between the greatest thinkers and writers of the 18th century. The Re-Launches of "Grove Music Online" (now being part of "Oxford Music Online") and "Grove Art Online" (now being "Oxford Art Online") will be presented as well as the new database "Encyclopedia of Popular Music". Furthermore, a focus will be set on the perpetual access models of scholarly books in 13 different subject modules through "Oxford Scholarship Online".
