Online collections

Finding resources

OxLip+ is the platform for searching Oxford's online collections of databases. It can also be used for searching for e-journals. For information on how to use OxLip+, there is a OxLip+ Guide.


EBL (E Book Library) is an ebook collection feauring works from major academic publishers in fields including the social sciences.

Anthropology Plus is an abstracting and indexing database combining references from both Anthropological Literature (Harvard) and the Anthropological Index (RAI/UK). A wide array of material (not all of it immediately available in Oxford) is covered from the late 19th century onwards.

WorldCat is a global union catalogue of books, web resources, and other material, covering over 40 million records catalogued by major university, research, national and public libraries.

COPAC is a catalogue for major academic and research libraries in the UK. This is a useful place to search for materials which are not in SOLO or available online. Items can be obtained on inter-library loan.

Intute is a portal for quality resources on the Internet. Each resource has been evaluated and categorised by subject specialists based at UK universities.

Remote access

There are three methods of accessing subscription resources off campus:

  1. Single Sign On. Sign on to SOLOOxLIP+ or your University email and your browser retains the sign on. This allows you to access most e-resources as if you were on campus. 
  2. VPN (Virtual Private Network). Register with OUCS to log on to the network via VPN. Once logged on you can access all e-resources as if you were on campus.
  3. Departmental Server. Members of the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology can use all e-resources via the terminal server.

For further information see the Bodleian Libraries remote access guide.
