Free ebooks from Oxford University Press during National Library Week

Posted on Updated on

We have been enthusiastically celebrating National Library Week at the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library over the past few days.  National Library Week (April 13-19 2014) is an annual event that has been held by the American Library Association (ALA) since the fifties.  It’s an opportunity to recognize the work of librarians, information professionals, and libraries.  Libraries are an integral part of communities that have a meaningful impact on people.  As a new librarian, I am excited to be a part of this vibrant profession.

To celebrate, Oxford University Press (OUP) is offering free access to ebooks and online resources until April 19th.  High quality, academic, and scholarly ebooks are freely available for the week. Visit Oxford University Press and log on with the user name and password, libraryweek.

Titles available for the week include:

  • Oxford Reference
  • Oxford History of Music
  • Oxford Music Online
  • Oxford Dictionaries
  • AMA Manual of Style

Feel free to leave a comment or drop by the library to celebrate National Library Week with us!
