"Casper Grathwohl, Vice President and Publisher of Reference at Oxford University Press, commented: "The Berg Fashion Library is an ideal resource for OUP to distribute.  We've seen just how much interest there is in fashion through Grove Art and Oxford Art Online. The Berg Fashion Library fills a real gap, not only for scholars and students of fashion and art, but for a broad range of disciplines - anthropology, history, theater studies, sociology, human geography, folklore. Additionally, links between Grove Art and the Berg Fashion Library will enrich our offering to existing and new subscribers." (17/2/10)
