We are now on Pinterest!

Follow Me on Pinterest

Follow our pins for what we want to read, watch, and perhaps eat, while reading and watching.

About Pinterest: Our goal is to connect everyone in the world through the 'things' they find interesting. We think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests.

The UHMC Library now has subscriptions to two online dictionaries:

Oxford Dictionary

The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) is widely regarded as the accepted authority on the English language. It is an unsurpassed guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of 600,000 words— past and present—from across the English-speaking world.

Oxford Language Dictionaries (Chinese, French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish)

The innovative Oxford Language Dictionaries Online site offers essential language resources never before available online: fully searchable, completely comprehensive bilingual dictionaries, and unique study materials that provide extra help with learning and using an expanding range of languages.

Right now they are only available on campus, but very soon will also be remotely available. You can get to the databases from the library's homepage ( and click the "Search Us" link.
