Contents Notes
"This new edition of Harrod's Librarians' Glossary and Reference Book has been expanded by over 1,100 entries. It now contains over 9,600 key terms, abbreviations and acronyms relating to libraries, books, information management and IT, including the names, postal addresses and, for the first time, many Web site addresses, of major libraries and other important organizations, professional associations, networks, government bodies, projects and programmes, consortia and institutions. Entries have been comprehensively revised and, thanks to the international team of advisers and contributors, are more international in coverage than at any point in the 60-year history of this respected reference source. Details given in the book range from helpful definitions of bookbinding terms to explanations of electronic terms such as PDF and TIFF, to lengthy entries on classffication and file coding, national libraries, fellowships and influential reports." "In one volume Harrod's Librarians' Glossary and Reference Book demystifies the jungle of jargon faced by librarians, information scientists, archivists and records managers. It also provides a mine of information for conservators, booksellers and publishers, and those working on the fringes of professional information management."--Jacket.
