April 14 - April 20

Celebrate National Library Week with free access to the Oxford English Dictionary ( ) and Oxford Reference ( ), available to everyone in North and South America through April 20th. To login, visit either site and use the following credentials:

The Oxford English Dictionary traces the evolution and use of words and is widely acknowledged to be the most authoritative and comprehensive record of the English language.

Oxford Reference brings together over 2-million entries into a single cross-searchable resource, from subject reference, quotation, and language dictionaries in the Oxford Quick Reference collection to award winning Oxford Companions and Encyclopedias in the Oxford Reference Library.

This unprecedented access to OUP content is in thanks for all the vital work that librarians do to support their patrons and in celebration of the week honoring libraries.
