E-Dictionaries We Pay For

We are starting to purchase Chinese e-books, a few at a time until we are sure about copyright, access and ease of use.

In the Library

There are lots and lots of Chinese, Chinese-English, English-Chinese, and character dictionaries in the UMass Library. The easiest way to find dictionaries is by doing a subject search: Chinese language dictionaries English  or Chinese characters dictionaries   Some are located in the East Asian Reference Room on the 22nd floor. Often older editions are located in the circulating collection on the 21st floor and the 12th floor. You can find one to check out by going to either 21st or 12th floor and browsing in the call number range of PL1420 and PL1455 to get dictionaries that you can check out of the library.
