2021 Update: Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers will be migrated onto a new digital platform.


In April 2021, Bloomsbury Digital Resource will be launching Bloomsbury Philosophy Library, a growing digital hub that will provides access to primary texts in translation, secondary literature, exclusive articles, and encyclopedia entries. Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers will be migrated onto Bloomsbury Philosophy Library at this time. 

Bloomsbury Philosophy Library will have three collections on the platform at launch - Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers, Bloomsbury 20th-Century French Thought and Bloomsbury History of Modern Aesthetics

What will happen to my access of Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers?

If your institution has purchased or subscribed to Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers, you will still have access to that content. The current URL for Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers will be redirected to the new URL, which will be bloomsburyphilosophylibrary.com.

Please note that all pages on Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers will be re-directed to the new platform. 


What will be different on Bloomsbury Philosophy Library as opposed to the old Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers website?

The new platform is titled Bloomsbury Philosophy Library and will be branded as such. 

Bloomsbury Philosophy Library will host three collections at launch, as stated above. This means content outside of Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers will also be on the platform. While content may appear on the site, users will only have access to the collection that they have subscribed to or purchased. 

For example, if your institution only subscribes to Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers, you will only have access to content from Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers. Content from other collections will be locked. 

Are institutions able to renew their subscription to Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers?

Yes, Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers will still be available to purchase via subscription or perpetual access basis. 

Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers will not be going away, just migrating to a new site. 

What will happen to my personal account?

You will still be able to log into your personal account on the new Hub. 

Favorited content saved to personal accounts will not be retained when Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers moves over to Bloomsbury Philosophy Library. Prior to migration, users will need to instead save those links to their browser favorites, so they do not lose them.

Favorited search items will not be retained when Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers moves over to Bloomsbury Philosophy Library. Search results will be different on the new platform, as users will be able to see search results from multiple collections if they would like.
