University of Oxford Electronic Resources

Use

Generally user-friendly and easy to navigate, this site offers a Google search interface plus a restricted Internal Oxford Search, with some helping tools but no interactivity options. Some sections lack a user-friendly approach

Searchability

While the most complex Internal Oxford Search is only available from within the University of Oxford, a Google search interface allows to find reference and other material available in the libraries

Downloading

Material viewing and saving is quickly available, with advanced downloading options reserved to Oxford University members

Navigational Aids

Along with a guide to this and other University services, a FAQ file has answers to both general and specific problems

User Friendliness

Besides some complexity and information overload, the Oxford Electronic Resources are easy to navigate -- although not always user-friendly for the general public
