Cambridge Companions provide excellent introductions to major writers, artists, philosophers, topics and periods. The Emory Libraries have been collecting Cambridge Companions since 1986, when Cambridge University Press published its first Companions, the Cambridge Companion to Shakespeare Studies and the Cambridge Chaucer Companion. Since that time Cambridge University Press has published several hundred Companions, covering such topics as literature, classics, philosophy, religion and art.
These titles have been very popular with students and many are always or almost always checked out. To respond to this demand, we have purchased a subscription to Cambridge Collections Online, which gives Emory students and researchers unlimited access to electronic editions of the Cambridge Companions.Cambridge Collections Online is updated with new titles as they are published. For a full list of titles that are available please visit the site.
While the Companions to Literature, Classics, Philosophy, Religion and Culture are available online, they have yet to publish electronic editions of their Companions to Arts or Music. However, this may change in the future and in the meantime Emory Libraries does hold a significant number of these titles in print.
