Oxford Dictionaries Premium

Oxford Dictionaries Premium (formerly known as 'Oxford Language Dictionaries Online' or 'OLDO') offers searchable, comprehensive bilingual dictionaries, and acts as a point of reference and guide for language learning. The University of Sheffield subscribes to the following languages:

  • Arabic
  • Chinese
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish

Please note that although we don't have access to the English language module of Oxford Dictionaries Premium, we do have access to the online edition of the Oxford English Dictionary (OED). (Read 'What are the main differences between the OED and Oxford Dictionaries?' for more information.)


Access is available directly from this page by connecting to the Oxford Dictionaries website - you'll be prompted to log in to MUSE as necessary.


If you experience any difficulties in using this eResource please call the Library HelpDesk on extension 27200 or email library@sheffield.ac.uk.
