Dictionaries!

IMG_0775CropNot happy with what you get googling a word? Want to learn the whole history of a word? Check out the State Library’s collection of dictionaries! We have multiple dictionaries (including a full 20 volume Oxford English Dictionary, the largest in the English language) dating back to the 1930’s, and all on a handy two sided shelf in our reference area. (To see what treasures are on the other side, you’ll have to come in and see us!)

Can’t come visit? We also provide access to authoritative dictionaries online via Britannica Academic:
