Finding Dictionaries

1. Click on Advanced Search in HoyaSearch

2. For bilingual dictionaries, the easiest way to search is to set the "subject" to the language name -- English. For example "Polish language -- English" will bring up Polish/English dictionaries. Armenian Language -- English will bring up Armenian language dictionaries.

Advanced Search. Subject selected from first dropdown, "Armenian language -- English" in search box.

3. To search for both english language and original language dictionaries, you will want to select "GU Only" under "Search for" and use the words "dictionar* OR grammar" AND the language you are interested in to search. "Dictionar*" should get you books that use the words dictionary and dictionaries. The word "grammar" is often used for older materials or as a subject heading in some languages.

GU Only selected, (Dictionar* OR Grammar) and Armenian as keywords in example

3. For languages with smaller numbers of speakers, you may want to search "GU + Consortium + Articles" and change the Content Type to "Books."
