Oxford University Press Makes Most Anti-Climactic Announcement of the Year

Link to August 30 Daily Mail article, "Death of the published dictionary: Oxford English Dictionary to exist solely online".

Excerpt: It was first published 126 years ago and is respected the world over.

But the Oxford English Dictionary will never appear in print again, its owners have announced.

Instead, the 80 lexicographers who have been working on the third edition for the past 21 years have been told the fruits of their labour will exist solely online.
