In celebration of the launch of the Africa Bibliography as a fully-searchable online database, Cambridge Journals are delighted to offer free online access until the end of June. The annual Africa Bibliography, long considered the leading bibliographic guide to all works in African studies, has been fully digitised by the team behind the esteemed Cambridge Journals Online platform in consultation with Africanist librarians.
The online Africa Bibliography features full bibliographic records comprising books, journal articles and chapters: each entry is classified and searchable by region, country and subject. It offers a variety of advanced search functionality including quick search, advanced Boolean, faceted search and browse options. The inclusion of full-text linking through CrossRef and Google Scholar will enable users to access a source immediately simply by clicking on an entry in the Bibliography. In addition this crucial research tool offers multiple search export formats compatible with a variety of citation management software tools. This advanced functionality and the wealth of bibliographic data have been combined to create a rich and interactive resource for all scholars in the field.
To experience this functionality for yourself, free until June 30th, simply visit http://africabibliography.cambridge.org
