Oxford Reference Online Updated

Oxford Reference Online, "the world's most trusted reference collection,"offers over 175 fully-indexed, cross-searchable dictionary, language reference and subject reference works published by Oxford University Press, including detailed information across a broad subject range from titles in the world-renowned Oxford Companions Series. The ORO database is updated at least three times a year with new titles, new editions, and additional features. Recent ORO updates include the Oxford Dictionary of American Art and Artists, A Dictionary of Law Enforcement, A Dictionary of Environment and Conservation, the Oxford Companion to Irish History and the Oxford Companion to Scottish History. You'll also want to check out ORO's Fact of the Day, which can be delivered to your e-mail inbox every day. Remember that the ORO can be accessed via the library's web site 24/7 -- all you need is your library card number. Don't have a library card? Apply for one online.
