Oxford English Dictionary Online is a subscription service available to students, faculty and staff through the Ohstrom Library website. You can use this service to check meanings of words, find the first recorded use of a word, or for inspiration in solving word puzzles, among other things. One of the services they now offer is the Word of the Day RSS feed. Now that you have read the earlier post introducing feed readers, you are ready to add OED to your daily feed.
