Oxford Puts Reference Works Online

Oxford University Press is making hundreds of its core language, subject reference dictionaries and Oxford Companions available on a new Web site ( Oxford Reference Online is expected to total well over 130 million words (equivalent to over 300 books) by the end of the decade. According to the announcement, this could make it the biggest general-knowledge resource on the Web.

The first part of the new Web site, The Core Collection, comprises over 1.5 million entries—dictionary definitions, facts, figures, people, places, sayings, and dates—from nearly 100 of Oxford's central English and bilingual dictionaries, usage, quotations, and subject reference books all combined to create one huge integrated knowledge resource. The service will cover over 20 subjects in the humanities, social sciences, science, and medicine, from art and astronomy to sociology and zoology. Included among the first titles are The Concise Oxford Dictionary, The Oxford American Dictionary, Fowler's Modern English Usage, Margaret Drabble's Concise Oxford Companion to English Literature, and The Concise Oxford Companion to American Literature. The site is available by subscription from $250 per year, and more than 1,000 institutions have already signed up for free trials.
