Manchester University Press is proud to announce the launch of the new Manchester Medieval Sources Online Platform

Manchester Scholarship Online (MSO) now makes available for the first time the best of MUP’s extensive scholarly studies in a cross-searchable library that offers quick and easy access to the full text of over 300 books in History, Literature, Political Science, Film, Television and Radio and Society and Culture.

At its launch in July 2012, Manchester Scholarship Online will join Oxford Scholarship Online on the University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) platform. Content on UPSO is fully cross-searchable.

Responding to increased demand for online scholarly content, UPSO streamlines the research process by making disparately published monographs easily accessible, highly discoverable and fully cross-searchable via one online platform. Research that previously would have required users to jump between a variety of books, and disconnected websites can now be concentrated through a single search engine.

Manchester Scholarship Online provides an online hub for the best in Manchester University Press monographs while also providing users with the latest set of highly intuitive tools to enable deep search across all the content in the UPSO program. As such, UPSO will be the premier online research tool—for scholars, teachers, graduate and undergraduate students—and an essential resource for all academic libraries.

  • Provides the highest quality scholarly content across 22 subject areas
  • Includes a vast and growing number of titles 7000+ titles will be available at launch, 652 of which are new titles, with abstracts and keywords at both the book and chapter level for each title
  • All UPSO content is available in XML, which provides deep tagging and better search results. Content can also be saved downloaded to PDF
  • Is fully cross-referenced and cross-searchable, with clickable citations from bibliographies and footnotes, including OpenURL and DOI-linking support
  • Allows users to streamline research through a single online platform
  • Can be easily integrated into library systems and updated frequently with new content
