Changes in technology, in society, and in your role as a library media specialist have spawned hundreds of new words, phrases, and acronyms. Where can you find their meanings? This dictionary was created to provide a single source of definitions for the language specifically associated with your profession. It covers all the basic terminology-words, phrases, and acronyms-you need for the daily operation of a K-12 school library media center. There are terms related to librarianship and publishing (access point, inquiry learning, incunabula, taxonomy), technology (gigabyte, microLIF), awards (Edwards, Alex, Children's Choices), organizations (Children's Book Council, LITA), celebrations (Children's Book Week), and more. Practical, thorough, and easy to use, this book is a ready-reference you'll use again and again.
