Language Dictionaries Online: A Guide: Introduction

Limited to online full-text language dictionaries, primarily those the Cornell University Library has purchased outright or subscribes to. Click on the TABS to access each section of this guide.


More language dictionaries are becoming available online all the time. The ease and speed of use, the authority of the online titles we subscribe to, and the extra services available online all argue for use of the online product when one is available.

The languages covered by the online dictionaries in this guide include English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Irish, Latin, Greek, Welsh, Japanese, Old English, Middle English, and Middle German.

For further information or to locate titles not listed here, always feel free to consult the reference staff.
