Gareth Vaughan Jones (1905–35) was a famous researcher, journalist and author. During his career he travelled the world, reporting on the Holodomor in Ukraine and Nazisim in Germany. The collection includes the famous ‘Hitler diary’ kept by Jones during his visit to Germany in the spring of 1933 and describes conditions and various events in Nazi Germany shortly after the Fuehrer had come to power there and presents uncannily perceptive pen-portraits of Hitler himself and Goebbels. A further group of six pocket diaries describe in some detail Jones’s visits to the Soviet Union between 1931 and 1933.

In Pennsylvania, legal education has a long, varied history. The Law Academy of Philadelphia, established in 1821 by leading Philadelphia lawyer Stephen Du Ponceau, was one of the earliest educational institutions in the United States for law-related education, teaching law students and junior members of the bar the art of moot courts. Eventually, the professional bar of Philadelphia developed one of the best reputations in the country (“the Philadelphia lawyer”). The Law Academy Project aims to explore the Academy’s history from its beginnings to the mid-twentieth century. Within the database, users will find biographies of the Academy’s leading officers; course pamphlets; annual addresses from noted local, national, and international law experts; as well as other shorter pieces relating to the Academy.

The Oxford Research Encyclopedia (ORE) project is one of the most ambitious reference projects that Oxford University Press has embarked upon. OREs are highly discoverable, peer-reviewed, online encyclopedias with essays planned, written, and reviewed by the world’s leading scholars and scientists, providing hundreds of in-depth articles on core topics in all of the major disciplines. Every month, new topics are added and current essays are updated, ensuring that users have the most up-to-date content at their fingertips. The ORE project combines the ease of access and speed of digital publishing with the standards of academic publishing. OREs:Synthesize primary research in high-level interpretive overview articles;
  • Provide anchoring information to be used at the start of a research project;
  • Are developed collaboratively with the global community of experts in a discipline;
  • Are written and vetted by scholars for scholars and students;
  • Direct users to other relevant, trusted content.

  • Working with international communities of scholars across all fields of study, Oxford has developed new comprehensive collections of in-depth, peer-reviewed summaries on an ever-growing range of topics. While most content is restricted to subscribers, full-text articles of pre-subscription and preview OREs are freely available, as are the summaries in restricted subscriber content.
