Oxford University Press is celebrating National Library Week with free access through April 20th to two of their best online resources:
- The Oxford English Dictionary, the mother of all dictionaries, which now includes the Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary. I blogged about the HTOED when it was first published in my post “Time-traveling through the English language….”
- Oxford Reference, which combines the information from hundreds of OUP reference works into a single searchable database.
Both sites can be accessed this week by using the same username and password: libraryweek
See OUP’s post for more information. If your local public library system subscribes to these resources, you may already have free access to them from home through your library website with your library card number and PIN.
