Online Dictionaries and Encyclopedias

Here you will find online versions of dictionaries and encyclopedias.  Some are the same as print counterparts, others are newer versions and some we do not have in print. They are all great sources for quick definitions and brief background on a myriad of subjects in all areas: humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and the performing and visual arts.
