You, your library, or an institution with which you are affiliated must have a current subscription to log in to Oxford Classical Dictionary (OCD) for full access. Learn how to subscribe to the OCD.
Logging on takes you directly to the home page.
Logging on with a username and password
If you have your own subscription to ORE, type your user name and password in the login fields in the left-hand nav bar. Your password is case-sensitive.
If you are a librarian and have problems logging in or have forgotten your password, please visit the Subscriber Service page to learn how to retrieve it.
Logging on from a subscribing institution
If you are logging in to ORE from an institution which has a subscription, or if your institution uses a referring URL system, you should enter the site automatically.
If you are returned to the Home page, please consult your system administrator or librarian.
If your institution uses Eduserv’s Athens service or Shibboleth, simply click on either of the labelled login links on the Home page to reach your Athens or Shibboleth login area.
Logging on with your library card
Some libraries allow remote access to websites to which they subscribe. Your librarian can tell you if that option is available to you.
If your library does allow remote access, enter your library card number in the Library Card field on the Home page. If you encounter difficulties entering the site using your library card number, please consult your librarian.
