I’ve been spending a lot of time at the Connecticut State Library recently. If you are a resident you can get a state library card for free and this entitles you to access their databases at no charge. Two databases that are especially neat are the Oxford English Dictionary online and Safari Bookshelf. OED Online normally costs $295 a year and is the most comprehensive source of information on the English language. Safari Bookshelf has a subset of about 78 titles from O’Reilly Media. If you were looking for some books on programming, blogging, or twittering its the place to go!
