Unfortunately, we no longer have a subscription to the OED. We do have numerous dictionaries in ebook format, both specialized and general. For example, we have the Oxford Dictionary of English as an ebook. Type that title in the main search box (where it says Search Books+) on the Library website, and the Oxford Dictionary of English will be (at the time of this writing) the tenth return. Simply click the link that says "URL" to be taken to that dictionary. If you are accessing it from outside the campus network, you will be asked to log in--that will be your standard HCC computer log on.
Please explore the ebook offerings available through other searches, such as simply "Dictionary" or "English dictionary." There are various reources available that could meet your needs.
The Websites tab of the Reference Research Guide will also direct you to a number of free online dictionaries.
