|Library offers access to two new electronic resources|
The Chester Fritz Library has added two new electronic sources, the Oxford English Dictionary and the Homeland Security Digital Library, to its bank of scholarly resources. Both of these information sources are available through the Internet to University students, faculty and staff both on- and off-campus.
Touted by The Times as the ultimate authority on the English language, the Oxford English Dictionary provides a guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of over half a million words, both present and past. Updated quarterly, this online resource provides an ever-evolving record of the English language.
The Homeland Security Digital Library became available to patrons of the Chester Fritz Library due to the Library’s designation as a Federal Depository Library. This window into unclassified documents provides access to more than 60,000 important U.S. policy documents, presidential directives, and national strategy documents as well as specialized resources from universities, organizations, as well as local and state agencies. Parts of the Homeland Security Digital Library site are restricted and require patrons to contact the Homeland Security Digital Library for information on possible access.
Both information sources can be accessed by visiting www.library.und.edu. For more information on the Library’s resources, contact the Reference desk at 777-4629 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
