The study of Atlantic History examines the transnational interconnections between Europe, North America, South America, and Africa, particularly in the early modern and colonial period. Through this lens, a wide range of national perspectives must be considered. Thus, there are consistently new discoveries, new interpretations, and new theoretical ideas to take into account. This task is made more difficult because a great deal of this work has moved online with the most recent scholarship and research appearing in online databases.
In Atlantic History, as in other fields, one of the most pressing challenges for research at all levels is managing the immense amount of scholarship and material available from journals, listservs, blogs, scholarly and reference works, and innumerable other sources and Oxford Bibliographies Online is an essential tool to help scholars manage this task.
