Oxford Google Books appearing in SOLO

The Bodleian Libraries have started the process of loading links into SOLO for Oxford books scanned as part of the Google Books project. These are being loaded in batches over the next few weeks, and we anticipate that there will be some 300,000 links to scanned versions of Oxford books available through SOLO by mid-March.

Google scanned several hundred thousand books from Oxford's collections, including many from the VHL stack. The books scanned were all out-of-copyright, mostly from the 19th century.

Please see for more information on Oxford's participation in the Google Books project and how these scanned versions will be findable and accessible in SOLO.
