Hertford Library is currently offering remote services while the library is inaccessible.
One-to-one support is available:
We're buying access to new ebooks on request and, in some cases, can buy books and have them delivered directly to you. We may also be able to arrange a scan of a specific chapter. Send us the details to email@example.com and we'll see what we can do.
If you have a reading list for the coming term please share it with us. We'd love to know what you need so we can help you get it! Please send any lists to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ebooks are being bought and added to SOLO daily.
To search exclusively for ebooks that are available to access from home, see our guide on limiting searches to accessible ebooks.
University members also have access to some other ebook sources that are not included in SOLO, details of these are listed below.
There follows a list of links to a selection of useful online resources for Music, a mixture of resources to which the Bodleian Libraries subscribe and freely-available resources. Some are permanently accessible; to others we have been granted temporary free access or trials during the COVID-19 crisis* although most of these trials are now over. The subscription databases are available remotely to current University members through their Single Sign-On (SSO) and, along with some of the open access resources, can also be accessed through the Databases A-Z list on the front page of SOLO or through SOLO itself. The resources on this list appear in no particular order and will be updated as more resources become available.
Audio-Visual Music Streaming:
The Internet Archive has freely available online books that are out of copyright. This means older editions of literary texts are often available there.
The Internet Archive has also made a number of 20th century academic books available to borrow through their Lending Library. To use this service you need to set up a free user account. These books are still in copyright so the authors may request that they are removed from the website. If you find a useful resources in the Lending Library then use them quickly and take very detailed notes - you might not be able to access them again in a few weeks.
Naxos Video Library. Online streaming of a wide range of music video recordings of opera, ballet, concerts, jazz, etc. Available to music students only - login details as for NML.
