If I obtain a library card, does that give me access to the online databases, specifically the OED? I had a card several years ago but never
A community patron library card does not give you access to the library databases off campus. However, you are welcome to come to Shafer Library and use any of our public computers to access our online resources.
As an Ohio citizen you are able to access a number of online resources through Ohio Web Library http://www.oplin.org/databases/ Unfortunately, this does not include the Oxford English Dictionary (OED).
I hope this helps.
