Oxford University Press launches new librarian newsletter
Date:1/15/2010

Oxford University Press has launched Illuminea, a new quarterly newsletter for academic librarians and information professionals. This publication will keep readers up-to-date with the latest developments at OUP and across the publishing world.

'Richard Gedye, Research Director for Journals at OUP, and member of the Editorial Team said: 'After careful and thorough discussion with the library community we have developed a strong and broad source of information for those interested in the entire range of resources we publish, as well as topical issues affecting librarians. We hope that Illuminea will become an integral part of our wider strategy of constant dialogue and engagement with the library community.'

Innovation is the underlying theme of the launch issue. The lead article looks at Oxford Bibliographies Online, a revolutionary resource tool, designed to help busy researchers find reliable sources of information by directing them towards useful books, chapters, journals, websites or databases. Its aim is to combine the best features of a research level encyclopaedia and the traditional bibliography.

Another article covers the ARROW project, a pioneering venture which will support the development of Europeana, a pan-European digital library, by establishing a single framework to manage rights information.

Also featured is the Oxford Language Web, a new facility of the Oxford Languages Dictionary Online allows word searches across multiple languages simultaneously, providing easy access to key vocabulary.

We assess an exciting initiative to place OUP content on mobile phones and new journal acquisitions for 2010. Each issue will also feature an 'Industry Focus' article, profiling an individual or product from the world of scholarly information or publishing.
