The Library also has access to a wide range of online reference resources, which includes directories, encyclopaedia, and both subject and language dictionaries. Access to these resources is through the Online Reference page and they are available to users both on and off campus.

Language dictionaries

These can be found in the Library's reference collections at Ref 473 (Latin) and Ref 483 (Greek). As well as the Oxford Latin Dictionary and Liddell and Scott, there are a number of other publications covering different aspects of the languages.
