Description: From Library Journal
The changing face of librarianship is well illustrated in this timely and invaluable volume of brief (two to three lines) definitions of terms important to the profession. Keenan, an information consultant and former member of the faculty at Loughborough University, has gathered 3000 entries, arranged into thematic sections: Information Sources; Information Handling and Retrieval; Computers and Telecommunications; Resource Management; Research Methodology; and Publishing. A table of contents page listing this arrangement would have been helpful. In addition, one has to first consult the alphabetical index to find a desired term. A Terminology Guide page at the end of the volume lists major similar dictionaries, such as Harrod's Librarians' Glossary (Gower, 1995. 8th ed.) and the ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science (American Library Assn., 1983). This volume, however, is more succinct than these others. Specific library terms are treated in greater depth by Harrod's and the ALA Glossary, while the Concise Dictionary gives more library-oriented and much-needed definitions to terms not usually associated with library science, such as "academic workstation," "rights ownership," and "worker's knowledge." For professional collections.?John Doherty, Montana State Univ. Lib., Bozeman
