This unique dictionary contains about 1,800 entries concerning library and information science, such as specialized terms related to basic concepts, library and information science education, library management, catalogues, categorization of subjects, indices and information search, and resources and media, as well as the names of relevant persons and organizations.
The 5th Edition, inheriting the user-friendliness of earlier editions, as well as adding new terms and reviewing all the terms in the 4th Edition, has, where necessary, altered or deleted entries. Commentaries have also been updated based on the latest information.
Besides being a resource to be kept close at hand for all librarians, this reference is a necessity for researchers and educators in the field of library and information science.
