Oxford Digital Reference Shelf: New Titles Now Available

from Oxford University Press:

Oxford is pleased to announce the addition of two exciting new resources to the Oxford Digital Reference Shelf:

Editor in Chief: Michael Gagarin
The clearest and most accessible guide to the world of classical antiquity ever produced, this reference work is a comprehensive overview of the major cultures of the classical Mediterranean world - Greek, Hellenistic, and Roman - from the Bronze Age to the fifth century CE. With over 1,100 signed A-Z articles, it also covers the legacy of the classical world and its interpretation and influence in subsequent centuries.

Edited by Michael F. Suarez, S.J. and Henry R. Woudhuysen
The Oxford Companion to the Book is a unique work of reference, covering the book, broadly conceived, throughout the world from ancient to modern times. It includes traditional subjects such as bibliography, palaeography, the history of printing, editorial theory and practice, textual criticism, book collecting, and libraries, but it also engages with newer disciplines such as the history of the book and the electronic book. It pays particular attention to how different societies shape books and how books shape societies. The only reference work of its kind in the field, the Companion has been written by 400 of the world's best scholars in bibliography and book history.

Special note for Oxford Reference Online Premium subscribers: all Oxford Digital Reference Shelf titles, in addition to being accessible at their individual URLs, are seamlessly integrated and cross-searchable within Oxford Reference Online Premium.
