Van Dale e-dictionaries

Few books will be as widespread over Wageningen UR - in libraries and at other places - as dictionaries. Until recently the library  did not make the step towards digital dictionaries, simply because at first what was offered was not good enough and later because the prices were too high.

Recently an agreement was made between Van Dale and the collaborating Dutch universities and schools for higher education for access to a number of digital dictionaries, which made this financially viable.

Employees and students of Wageningen UR now have access to:  Groot Woordenboek der Nederlandse taal (including the first edition of 1864) and the bilingual dictionaries Engish, French, German and Spanish.
