It is published by HarperCollins in Glasgow.WEB, History,weblink www.harpercollins.co.uk, HarperCollins, 11 June 2019,weblink 11 June 2019, Glasgow, 2015, no, The edition of the dictionary in 1979 with Patrick Hanks as editor and Lawrence Urdang as editorial director, was the first British dictionary to use the full power of computer databases and typesetting in its preparation. This meant that, for instance, subject editors could control separate definitions of the same word and the results could be blended into the result, rather than one editor being responsible for a word.{{citation needed|date=February 2012|reason=See Talk}}In a later edition, they increasingly used the Bank of English established by Hanks at COBUILD to provide typical definitions rather than examples composed by the lexicographer.
