Library jargon

Libraries, like any other industry, have their own jargon. Technical terms that get tossed around to describe old and new technologies, fancy acronyms and terms that describe what it is we librarians do, and so on. We try as hard as possible to explain library services and resources without using all the technical terms, but sometimes we slip up, or sometimes there’s just no way around it. Fear not, because the Regis Libraries have prepared a short glossary of library terms to help you when you are confronted by any “library lingo”. For a longer list of terms, check out the Arizona State University glossary of library terminology.
