      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
      Oxfords (full
      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
      the subscriber
      option, not the limited public one.

      For example the ODNB is here, ready to put your
      library card no. in
