Off-campus users may have trouble accessing the Oxford English Dictionary

Posted: Thu, Aug 3rd 2023

The Oxford English Dictionary is experiencing prolonged access problems off-campus.

Users who authenticate with EZproxy may be able to access the dictionary initially, but access ceases after they use the site for awhile, or navigate away from the site and go back to it.

Oxford University Press is working on the problem, but they have not released a timeframe for resolution.

 In the meantime, users should log in to the VPN to access the OED from off-campus.
