IUP does have a subscription to the Oxford English Dictionary online  To find it, go to the Library Home page ( and click on the "Article Databases" link.  Then select "Oxford English Dictionary" from the alphabetic list.

When accessing the OED Online from off campus, you may be taken to the Keystone Library Network PASS page to log in.  On this page, use the block on the left and enter your library barcode (the 16-digit number on the bottom of your I-Card) and your last name.    If you are currently logged in under IUP's VPN (Virtual Private Network) system, you will not be required to log in.
