I’m very pleased to let you know that following a request from staff in Classics the Library now has a subscription to the Oxford Classical Dictionary (online) from Oxford University Press.
The Oxford Classical Dictionary is seen as one of the leading resources for online research in Classics and contains over 6,000 full-text articles from the 4th Edition, with new and updated articles added each month.
You can access the Oxford Classical Dictionary via DiscoverEd.
The Oxford Classical Dictionary incorporates intuitive search options that offer easier navigation, new and continuously updated articles that enable researchers to ensure their scholarship is current, reliable perspectives from an ever-growing, international team of contributors, and multimedia content – including interactive maps, audio, and images – that take full advantage of the OCD’s digital form to vividly depict the ancient world.
You can access the Oxford Classical Dictionary via DiscoverEd. The Library also has the 4th, 3rd and Revised 3rd edition of the Oxford Classical Dictionary in print. You can also find these via DiscoverEd.
Access to the online Oxford Classical Dictionary is only available to current students and staff at the University of Edinburgh.
