"Concise Dictionary of Library and Information Science 2nd edition is an international, comprehensive introduction to the vocabulary of library and information science. It is a practical day-to-day tool that will help to explain clearly and concisely over 5000 terms used in the profession. The second edition has been completely revised and approximately 2000 new terms added, mostly in the computing and telecommunications area, reflecting the growth of the Internet and its impact on the profession." "All the terms are arranged in one alphabetical sequence, but still incorporating the six themes present in the first edition: information sources, information handling, computers and telecommunications, management, research methodology, and publishing." "One of the aims is to make the dictionary a 'one-stop shop' with full definitions given for all synonymous terms and acronyms." "The authors have compiled a dictionary that will be invaluable for both students and practitioners, defining the LIS terminology used by the profession."--Jacket

Results of questionnaire on current awareness methods used by physicists prior to publication of "Current papers in physics" (first report of CPP study) by Margaret Slater( Book )

7 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Institution of Electrical Engineers conducted a study in the United Kingdom and the United States to determine the need for their new publication "Current Papers in Physics (cpp)," and its usefulness to the physics community. Questionnaires were used to (1) recruit panel members to test reader reaction to the publication over a period of one year, (2) collect necessary background on panelists, (3) determine methods used by physicists to obtain current information prior to cpp, and (4) discover what physicists felt a good awareness journal in physics should be like. Prior to cpp, the three most widely used methods of current awareness were (1) scanning current issues of journals (2) contacts with colleagues, and (3) listening to presentations at meetings. The use of abstract journals was a major method of both retrospective search and current awareness. A major concern for an awareness journal was that it be current. Physicists were concerned with specialized aspects of physics and not general information. Appendixes contain (1) questionnaires, (2) additional panel data, (3) data on overseas panels, and (4) comments on published abstract journals as current awareness tools. (Dh)

Use made of "Current Papers in Physics" by Margaret Slater( Book )

3 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the first year of publication of Current Papers in Physics (1966) a joint study was undertaken in the uk by Aslib working under contract with the Institute of Electrical Engineers (iee) and in the us by the American Institute of Physics (aip) to assess the need for the new publication and its usefulness to the physics community. The study was designed in three phases. This report covered the third phase which was conducted after nine months of publication of cpp. 215 physicists in the uk and 393 physicists in the us returned a copy of the October 10, 1966 issue of Current Papers in Physics on which they had indicated items of interest to them. These markings and any additional comments offered by the respondents were analyzed in terms of the physicists' specialties to provide detailed information on the optimum arrangement of cpp to match the fields of interest of the physics community. In addition, the methods in which cpp is used, and the number of requests for abstracts and papers of references in this issue of the publication were recorded. (Author)
