Two New Oxford Sets

The Washington and Lee University Library has acquired online access to two recently-released major encyclopedias from Oxford University Press — the Oxford Encyclopedia of Human Rights and the Oxford Encyclopedia of the Modern World.
The latter title includes an entry on the The Automobile Industry by W&L Professor of Economics Mike Smitka.
These two multi-volume “electronic books” are available online to current W&L students, faculty, and staff from just about any location allowing access to the W&L computing network, on-campus or off-campus. (If your first attempt to link does not work, back up and try again.)

Encyclopedia of Modern China

The Washington and Lee University Library recently acquired online access to the newly-released Encyclopedia of Modern China, a major new resource covering the history and culture of China over the past two centuries.
While perusing the list of contributors (available through the “eTable of Contents”), we discovered a local connection. Professor of History, Emeritus, Roger Jeans authored three essays included within this work — “Federalism,” “Liberalism, and “Zhang Junmai (Carson Chang).”
This four-volume “electronic book” is available online to current W&L students, faculty, and staff from just about any location allowing access to the W&L computing network, on-campus or off-campus. (If your first attempt to link does not work, back up and try again.)
