The Bodleian Libraries provide access to a wide variety of electronic resources including electronic journals, e-books, newspapers and online databases. Online resources can be accessed through SOLO, OxLIP+ and OU e-journals.
If you are a member of Oxford University working outside of the Oxford network you can access subscription resources when off campus using your Oxford Single Sign On. Please refer to the Bodleian Libraries' Remote Access page for further details.
Use our online library catalogue SOLO (Search Oxford Libraries Online) to search across the Bodleian Libraries for books.
You can also browse the shelves of the Wellcome Unit Library using the Library of Congress Classifcation Scheme as a guide to subject areas.
Many academic journals are now available online in full-text. To search for an electronic journal go to OU e-journals which is now contained within OxLIP+. Many of the most popular History of Medicine journals are available electonically including Bulletin of the History of Medicine, Journal of the History of Medicine and Allied Sciences, Medical History and Social History of Medicine.
OxLIP+ is the main gateway to the Bodleian Libraries' electronic resources. You can search by title or subject for resources including newspapers, primary sources, statistics, e-book collections, citation indexes, reference works and bibliographic databases.
Bibliographic databases are useful tools for finding individual journal articles, book reviews and conference proceedings. Key ones include: Historical Abstracts, Bibliography of British and Irish History and History of Science, Technology and Medicine.

Individual electronic books are listed in SOLO. Search by title and then select the 'Online resource' link. Collections of e-books such as ACLS Humanities E-book, Cambridge Histories Online, ECCO (Eighteenth Century Collections Online) and EEBO (Early English Books Online) are also available via OxLIP+.
Guides to collections, libraries and finding and using resources are available for further help. See our guides page for links.
Many websites offer free access to quality information resources. We are currently building up a list of links to free online resources and websites for History of Science and Medicine on our delicious page. Another useful portal for web resources is MedHist although this is no longer being updated.
