Dictionary of Old English now online!

I didn't want this to get lost in the crush of my earlier miscellany:

The Dictionary of Old English project announces with joy the release of the first online version of DOE: A to G in December 2007. Highlights of the new publication include:the first release of the letter G, as well as revisions of the seven previously published letters; a more powerful search engine which enables Boolean searches on two or more fields of a DOE entry as well as Boolean searches within a single field; the hotlinking of Latin short titlesto their bibliographic references; and, most excitingly,the hotlinking to the OED (as long as your university has access to the online OED) for those Old English words which have a later history.

DOE: A to G online is distributed by site license both to institutions ($200 per year) and individuals ($75 per year).Further information is available at the DOE website:

You know, whenever I mention the DOE, I always feel like I should have Sesame Street-style sponsorship: "This posting has been brought to you by the numbers 5 and 7, and by the letter G."
