Oxford English Dictionary (Campus only) This is the most comprehensive English dictionary (20 volumes in the book version). May be confusing for learners, but provides excellent information on etymology and gives the pronunciation of obscure (including scientific) words. OED
Wikipedia (English version) Not recommended as a primary source for academic dissertations, but it can provide a good springboard for research. Wikipedia
British National Corpus (for advanced users) A corpus is a vast online database of texts: users can search for words and phrases for real-life examples of how they are used in English (collocations, punctuation, position in sentence etc). Particularly useful in academic writing: try a search for "nevertheless" or "albeit". BNC

 

Gedruckte Wörterbücher

The book versions of Cambridge and Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionaries are also available with a CD-Rom. Generally, Learner's Dictionaries are (as their name suggests) more helpful for non-natives than dictionaries designed for native speakers such as the Oxford Concise Dictionary. Also particularly recommended is the Oxford Dictionary of Collocations (sadly without an "official" internet presence). Both the book version and the CD-Rom are in our Mediothek.

For bilingual dictionaries, Oxford-Duden and Pons can be particularly recommended. Our Mediothek also contains many specialist dictionaries, the merits of which will be discussed on Paul Kingsbury's blog at a later stage.
