About this Guide

A dictionary is a book or electronic resource that lists the words of a language (typically in alphabetical order) and gives their meaning, or gives the equivalent words in a different language, often also providing information about pronunciation, origin, and usage.

This guide lists some of the many online dictionaries the Eugene McDermott Library offers. On the left navigation tabs, you can peruse each section for various recommendations in different subject areas.
