Oxford University Press Very Short Introductions includes nearly 400 e-books on topics in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences. These succinct introductory texts provide scholarly yet accessible overviews on concepts, intellectual traditions, processes, and contemporary issues. They are ideal for undergraduate students in the beginning stages of conducting research for a paper, supplementary reading for university courses, and the general consumer who desires to learn more about a particular subject. Areas needing improvement include adding the ability to download chapters or entire books for offline reading, devising a more equitable pricing structure for academic libraries, and making performance enhancements to the online platform.
