Dear collegues,

friendly winds are taking me for some weeks to the Bay Area and I was wondering if I have to take my complete dictionary assortment with me or if there are public libraries with specialized dictionaries or any other place that provides such a service.

Thanks for your help.

Best regards
Eva Breust

Bay area Jun 21, 2003

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure that I understand "the Bay area". You might be referring to San Francisco, but then again, there are other places that I know of that we call the Bay area, even with a capital "B". Others might be confused, too, so it would help to be more specific. Thanks.

Gayle

Thanks for your comment. I am going to be in Berkeley, California but unrelated to the Univesity, so I don't think I could use their library.

Stanford library Jun 21, 2003

Eva, if you are indeed talking about the San Francisco Bay area, you should look at Green Library, in Stanford. I think it's open to the public, though you do have to get a ticket (ask at the library). They have a wonderful foreign-language collection, in all sorts of languages, and a lot of good dictionaries.
