eBooks @ Lund University Libraries

Oxford Reference Online (ORO) is made up of two fully integrated and cross-searchable collections, Oxford Quick Reference and Oxford Reference Library. Oxford Reference is a public platform which means that you can preview bibliographic information, abstracts and table of contents for all titles, but fulltext is only available for owned titles.

Please note that Lund University Libraries does not have access to all titles on ORO. Our collection consists of 299 reference works plus older editions, currently a total of 378 titles. ORO also includes 133 titles that are not a part of our license, these titles have a red padlock. To see only reference titles available to Lund University, select Show books in my subscription on the left-hand side of the start page. Then make sure that only the the box for Unlocked is checked and all our currently owned reference titles will be listed. Only Oxford Reference content marked with an unlocked icon is available in full text for Lund University oxford

If you are looking for language dictionaries you will find them on NE:s Dictionaries.
