Picture of part of a page from a dictionary.Not sure what librarians are talking about when they talk library-ese? Fret not! We've put together a guide to library jargon and what it means in plain English.

The definitions in this glossary have been adapted from the ACRL Multilingual Glossary of Terms, the Online Dictionary of Library and Information Science (ed. Joan M. Reitz), and Wallace Library staff contributions.
