Just added to the Library's business databases, Plunkett Research provides a wealth of information about industry trends and statistics for a wide variety of industries from advertising to wireless communications. In addition Plunkett profiles thousands of industry-leading companies, spanning both public and privately held firms. It features information about industry associations and organizations, too. Plunkett is an excellent tool for job seekers, investors, students, market researchers and others. Plunkett Research is available through our web site under research. Click on databases by subject, then business. You need to be an A.H. cardholder to use it outside of the Library.

Great news for the wordsmiths of the world! The Library now subscribes to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) online.
"The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) is widely regarded as the accepted authority on the English language." It gives the meaning, history, and pronunciation of 600,000 words— past and present. The OED is a historical dictionary, so it is very different from other dictionaries. In addition to giving present-day meanings, you'll find the history of individual words, and of the language.
Try the Oxford English Dictionary today. You will it under databases on our website.
