Current; the core collection of Oxford Reference Online brings together 100 language and subject dictionaries and reference works published by the Oxford University Press into a single cross-searchable resource.

"Keywords: Interdisciplinary Roundtable Conversations draws participants together from a wide range of disciplinary homes in order to explore the various ways we think about fundamental critical/theoretical ideas and to generate new vocabularies and new methodologies."
The Keywords Project is a collaborative research initiative investigating 'key' words prominently used but also contested in social debate in English. Different meanings available for each keyword, which vary both in specific sense and in evaluative implication, can confuse rather than progress discussion in which the word is used. The project aims to contribute to our understanding of the processes involved in 'public conversation' and civil society more widely by publishing short entries on approximately 100 such 'keywords', along with a project archive of longer essays and materials, plus audio and video.
