Glossary of Library & Information Science is an encyclopedic glossary and dictionary of terms and acronyms of librarianship, library science, information science, information technology, and knowledge organization & management. The entries of the glossary are given an encyclopedic treatment, they are far more exhaustive than a typical glossary or dictionary entry which in many cases are equivalent to an article in an Encyclopedia of Library of Information Science. The glossary will include everything from traditional library terms to a vocabulary of modern avenues in information science and technology. Glossary entries will include anything and everything required for an advanced study and reference on the Library and Information Science (LIS) topics, including biographies of famous librarians and articles from Librarians Reference DirectoryIndividual entries in the LIS glossary appear in a blog article in the Librarianship Studies & Information Technology blog. Glossary entries are revised from time to time, as required, to present the most up-to-date information on the subject. At the same time, new articles are continuously being added to the glossary. Glossary of Library and Information Science will become an essential part of every library’s and librarian’s reference collection and will also be helpful to librarians, LIS i-School Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) & Ph.D. students, researchers, and IT professionals.

BACKGROUND

Glossary of Library & Information Science is authored by Salman Haider for the librarians all across the globe. Salman Haider is a library science blogger and creator of Librarianship Studies & Information Technology and Resource Description and Access (RDA) blogs, among six other blogs. His blog articles required definition and description of the key terms be included in the articles. But it was not feasible to include definitions of key terms included therein the articles itself. So the idea of Glossary of Library and Information Science came with the definition of key terms used in Library and Information Science which could be provided as hyperlinks in the blog articles for further reference. Later its scope was expanded beyond that of a usual glossary to include anything and everything required for an advanced study and reference on the Library and Information Science (LIS) topics. Initially, there was a practice to include the phrase Glossary of Library & Information Science to the title of the glossary articles (e.g., Cataloging : Glossary of Library & Information Science) which was later discontinued for search engine optimization purposes.

AIMS & PURPOSE

Glossary of Library & Information Science aims to support the purpose of Librarianship Studies & Information Technology to provide leadership for the development, promotion, and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all. Librarianship Studies & Information Technology blog is envisioned as the BritannicaThe Huffington PostKhan Academy, and more closely like the Encyclopedia of Library and Information Sciences; an authoritative source for consultation and reference for any library or information profession related issue and a treasure hub of knowledge on Library and Information Science, which is open and free for all the library professionals worldwide.

ARRANGEMENT OF ENTRIES

The word-by-word method of filing is used; acronyms and abbreviations, whether pronounceable or not, are treated as words and filed in the alphabetical sequence in their appropriate place. Words separated by a hyphen are treated as a single word. Where there is a choice between a full term and an acronym, the entry appears under whichever is likely to be more commonly found in the literature, with a reference from alternative expression. Sub-pages to the glossary are also created, starting from A to Z, listing preferred terms in the glossary and referring from unused terms as references, which then redirect to preferred terms. For example, see Glossary of Library & Information Science : C where non-preferred term Cataloguing refers the preferred term Cataloging

TERMS OF USE

All librarians and information professionals may use information from Glossary of Library and Information Science for their writings and research, with proper attribution and citation. I would appreciate it if you would let me know, too!

When fully fleshed out, this lexicon will serve as a valuable tool for all LIS professionals, but especially for librarians in training and those new to the field.

    This is pretty cool. Wish something like this had existed a few years ago to help wrap my head around all the acronyms we had to learn in Library School.
