The purpose of the blog is to connect patrons to the vast resources available in the Cornell Library.
Posts often correspond with current events and materials we have at the Library related to those events. Not only do posts highlight specific resources, and faculty work, but they also offer tips as to how to use search terms within JULIEN to find materials.
We also post the library’s hours, events, acquisitions and news here.
Thanks for visiting!
Maybe you’re still working on finalizing the term papers, or getting ready for the summer or for a vacation in a foreign country, you will find Oxford Dictionaries Online a handy tool to help hone your English skills. We have a institutional subscription to Oxford Dictionaries English at VLS. It’s not only a wonderful site to look up the meanings of words, their pages are full of useful resources as well.

Interested to law students, our premium subscription also includes one useful online book/dictionary named Garner’s Dictionary of Legal Usage. This dictionary provides invaluable help for practicing lawyers, legal scholars, students and anyone who deals with the language of law. It provides guidance on all the vexing questions that legal writers face, from correcting grammatical errors and framing legal issues to distinguishing between near-synonyms. We also have a print copy of this book in the library reference collection.
Access this (and more) database from our library portal A-Z database page. Let us know if you like it or not, or if you have any questions! Reach us at email@example.com.
