EUI Library launches access to Oxford Handbooks Online in four core disciplines

The Library now provides access to Oxford Handbooks Online in the EUI’s four primary disciplines: Economics, History, Law and Political Science. The Handbooks are edited collections on “current thinking on a field or topic, and make an original argument about the future direction of the debate.” New Handbooks in the four clusters will be available to EUI members as they are published. For the complete list of titles and full text access, open this Catalogue record. A list of Handbooks by discipline is at this link.
