This guide is intended as a quick introduction to finding and using key online resources for Women's Studies available via SOLO and OxLIP+ (the Oxford Libraries’ Information Platform) as well as some freely available web resources.
SOLO is the catalogue for the major collections of the libraries of the University of Oxford where you will find detailed information about our library holdings, both in print and online. The databases on OxLIP+ can help you locate full text versions of original works, as well as references to books and journal articles on a particular topic. You can print, download or email information retrieved from most of these.
