        Richard,

        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
