Would the OPL be willing to purchase an Oxford English Dictionary Online Subscription for library members use?
Thank you for asking about this. We did have a subscription a few years ago but ended up dropping it because it was not cost effective. Although much loved by many library staff it was never used enough to justify the expense. Now similar content is availabe online at no cost from other dictionary publishers, or for those who just want to check the spelling of a word it is easiest to enter it into a search engine. That said, if we see enough demand for this database we'd consider adding it to our online resources.
