EIFL has renewed its agreement with Oxford University Press for 30 e-resources, including journals, online databases and e-book collections.
The list of e-resources includes:
- Oxford Journals Collection of over 350 journals
- The Oxford English Dictionary, a historical dictionary of the English language
- Oxford Reference Online reference database
- Oxford Handbooks Online, a collection of over 1,000 handbooks

For the 2020 renewal of the agreement, Oxford Scholarly Editions Online and the Oxford Research Encyclopedias were also included.
- Oxford Scholarly Editions Online is a collection of primary works by authors active between 701 and 1901, plus Classical Latin and Greek authors — from Aristotle, Austen, Bentham, Catullus, Dickens, and Donne through to Plato, Virgil and Wordsworth. It contains over 1,500 scholarly editions — the equivalent of more than 760,000 print pages. It constitutes the cornerstone of research in the fields of English Literature, as well as Philosophy, History, Religion, and Classical Studies.
- Oxford Research Encyclopedias is a collection of essays on a wide range of topics, designed to give readers an overview of a subject that they can understand in half an hour of reading or less. The Oxford Research Encyclopedias are written for anyone wishing to expand their knowledge, from a student just starting out in their studies to a researcher needing background in a related field.
