OSEO provides access to more than 380 scholarly editions of material written between 1485 and 1788. These editions contain over 36,000 different works from plays to poetry to letters, the equivalent of over 193,000 print pages!

"This is a game-changing online file that surpasses the equivalent print editions and is recommended for serious scholarship in the humanities everywhere." - Cheryl LaGuardia, Library Journal
"These digitized scholarly editions are not intended to eclipse the print volumes. Indeed, one can well imagine working with the print and electronic formats in concert. What this new version does confer is a whole new level of discoverability." - J. Millhorn, Northern Illinois University, Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries (Editors' Picks)
"Authoritative sourcing is critical in humanities scholarship, and few institutions in the world are more respected than Oxford University" - Barbara
Quint, Information Today
"Such editions have the familiar advantages of being able to search across a large corpus of material as well as notes which can be viewed alongside the text rather than tucked away at the end of a printed book." - Matthew Reisz, Times Higher Education
