Happy Dictionary Day

(Cross posted from the Gypsy Librarian blog)

From, Jessamyn's blog, a note that today is Dictionary Day. Dictionary Day is a a celebration of Noah Webster's birthday; he was born in 1758. I am sure a few people in their younger days got told by an adult when asking about a word, "go ask Mr. Webster." The link to Dictionary Day goes to a press release from Oxford University Press that gives some suggestions on how to celebrate. Jessamyn is celebrating by subscribing to a podcast. Me? I am at work today, so I will be celebrating by doing what I do best: helping patrons and meeting their information needs, which may include pointing them to a good dictionary.
