"...the most current & thus the most useful in the field. If you read library literature, you need it."--RQ (regarding the previous edition). In this age of information compression, the sound bite, & increasing specialization, unexplained acronyms are cropping up in newspapers, media journals, & spoken word media. The demand for an up-to-date, comprehensive dictionary to decipher specialist literature has now been met. The first extensive international dictionary of its kind, this newly revised & enlarged edition records 33,600 acronyms (5,100 more than its 1976 incarnation) from 143 countries in 35 languages, & covers librarianship, archive management, reprography, information science, publishing, printing, journalism, & so much more. It also includes short descriptions of institutions, libraries & information systems, information research languages, titles of publications, specialist magazines, bibliographies, & other information sources. Terms are accompanied by the abbreviation of the country. In cases where an acronym is used simultaneously as an abbreviation for several terms or names, these are listed with the reference letters of the country. In addition, the foundation year of institutions, information systems & other services, & where necessary, the year when an institution or service was renamed, are entered in the revised edition. Since there may be as many as 30 different explanations for an acronym, such information is especially useful.
