Some of us are in small USA towns whose public
libraries don't work the way yours do.

Thanks Jane. Just to point out that anyone with a
library ticket in a
major city should be able to access most of the
dictionary, this one, and others, including
Britannica) from home by
accessing the Oxford site and entering your library
ticket number. Most
cities seem to subscribe to this, and it is superb.
All the major Oxford
(and Cambridge if you go there) are there. If you
don;t have a ticket
you can access from your city library. Always go for
option, not the limited public one.
For example the ODNB is here, ready to put your
library card no. in
