Back to work - and update on Le Grand Robert

Hi all,
I have returned to work after my leave of absence - and will be start  to regularly update this blog with new acquisitions, database tips, and other news related to research and library resources.

For today's tip, a reminder that we have access to the online version of Le Grand Robert French dictionary, either from the Databases page or by searching "Grand Robert" in the catalog. (We now have the ability to search for databases in Searchworks!)

The online Grand Robert has been adding some nice features, as well. You can download a widget to allowing you to search directly from the search box on the upper right of your browser (IE or Firefox). The dictionary now also offers a phonetic spellchecker, which will find you the right word even if you are unsure of the spelling!
