Q. How do I find the definition of a word?

Answer

There are a couple of places you can try:

From the JCC Library Homepage, go to Databases by Title under SEARCH COLLECTIONS.  You will find the Oxford English Dictionary under the letter "O".  If you are off-campus you will need your JCC Student ID and password to access the database.

The JCC Internet Sources Libguide contains a "Dictionaries" page.  Dictionary.com or Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary are both good online dictionaries.
