"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

"Listing over 10,000 entries, Harrod's Librarians' Glossary and Reference Book spans everything from traditional printing terms to search engines and from book formats to URLs. Revisions for this tenth edition have centred in particular on the Information Society and its ramifications, on the general shift towards electronic resources, and on e-commerce, e-learning and e-government, whilst at the same time maintaining key areas predating the IT revolution. Web terminology, URLs and IT terms have been checked and updated, and coverage of terms relating to digitization and digital resources, portals, multimedia and electronic products has been revised or expanded as necessary." "Harrod's Glossary now includes Knowledge Management terms, and this edition has also focused on developments in the field of intellectual property, copyright, patents, privacy and piracy. It gives wide international coverage of names, addresses and URLs of major libraries and other important organizations in the information sector, of professional associations, fellowships, networks, government bodies, projects and programmes, consortia and institutions, influential reports and other key publications. Entries are included on classification and file coding, on records management and archiving and on both the latest and the most enduring aspects of library and information skills." "Even with the Web at your fingertips Harrod's Librarians' Glossary and Reference Book remains a quicker reference for explaining specialist terms, jargon and acronyms, and for finding the URLs you need, whether you are working in a print-based or digital library, in archiving, records management, conservation, bookselling or publishing."--Jacket
