New partnership with Rarebooks.info

RarebooksLogo Oak Knoll Press and Rarebooks.info are pleased to announce a new partnership which makes over 30 of Oak Knoll’s in-copyright bibliographies available electronically. These bibliographies add to Rarebooks.info’s already outstanding collection of research materials.

Rarebooks.info, founded in 2000 and based in Boulogne, France, is an essential online collection of key bibliographies, containing a wealth of material, with many invaluable benefits to the research community. The website is useful in researching a wide variety of topics, including book history, typography, author history, world history, art history, and religion.

Here’s an example of what people have been saying about Rarebooks.info.

As director of the History of Text Technologies program at Florida State I have been an ardent supporter of the Rarebooks database to which FSU subscribed at my initiative three years ago. My students and colleagues, from History to English, now use it on a regular basis, marveled by its scope and riches as well as its user-friendly nature.

With the addition of Oak Knoll Press’s bibliographies, the perspective of Rarebooks.info is broadened significantly to include film noir, modern press books, as well as modern American and English authors.

Anyone can take advantage of this opportunity to use electronic versions of the Oak Knoll bibliographies, as well as the great depth and variety of other materials offered by Rarebooks.info, by visiting www.rarebooks.info and subscribing to the service.
