Not all dictionaries are made the same...

American Heritage College Dictionary (4th Edition) - Houghton Mifflin

Aside from the phone book, the American Heritage College Dictionary is probably the most used print resource in our Ready Reference department. The definitions are clear and concise with excellent word origin and usage notes given where needed. Also included are an abundance of biographical and geographical entries as well as a plethora of abbreviations and acronyms.

I'm not suggesting that you read it from cover to cover, but like an umbrella on a cloudy day, it's nice to know that the American Heritage College Dictionary is there if you need it. Check catalog for availability.
