Book in for a demonstration of two Oxford University Press reference services:
Oxford Dictionary of National Biography gives you access to biographies of people who have shaped British history and culture and who died in, or before, 2017.

Oxford English Dictionary is a guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of over 600,000 words— past and present—from across the English-speaking world. As a historical dictionary, the OED is very different from dictionaries of current English, in which the focus is on present-day meanings. You’ll still find present-day meanings in the OED, but you’ll also find the history of individual words, and of the language—traced through 3 million quotations, from classic literature and specialist periodicals to film scripts and cookery books.

The session will be presented by a trainer from the Oxford University Press.
