<< I know this is off-topic, but does anyone on this list know if the
OED
 has ever been put on a CD-ROM?  >>

Yes, and it is wonderful. The cost in England is around three hundred
pounds. This is a bargain as in book form it costs over a thousand
pounds. =

Hugh Davis asks whether the OED is on CD-ROM.

It has been for some years, but the first version was difficult to use,
and didn't really catch on.  I just bought the Second Edition, at the
price charged for individual users: $629.66 Canadian including all taxes
and shipping.  USD price at a guess might be in the region of 450.00.

If your email address refers to Chapel Hill, I'm sure your excellent
library's main floor CD-ROM section must have it.

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0495 Q: OED

Doubtless, I'll be one of many people to confirm that the OED has,
indeed, been released in electronic form. An increasing number of
institutions are providing it as a networked resource.

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0495  Qs: OED is on line!

Perhaps our listowner can provide the website of the OED. I understand
that it is on line. I think it may be freely accessed fos a week or a
month and, like the E.B., then, access is granted after payment of a sum
not higher than $150 a year.

Thank you
Nora Kreimer

Hugh Davis asked whether "the OED has ever been put on a CD-ROM?"

Yes it has, and as you suspect, the edition costs less-about $900, I
believe-about one-third of the cost for the printed and hardbound set. =

If you are fortunate enough to be among the students, faculty, and staff
at the University of Pennsylvania, then you have free access to a CD
edition of the OED because the university has a network license.
