Multilingual Glossary for Library Users (and Staff)

The Instruction for Diverse Populations Committee of the ACRL Instruction Section is pleased to present the Multilingual Glossary for Today’s Library Users, now available as a Google Doc. This multilingual glossary includes a language table of commonly-used library terms presented in seven languages, and definitions for each term in English. These documents are designed to assist ESL speakers and the librarians who work with them. Converting the glossary table and definitions to Google Documents enables the committee to readily implement new terminology and make revisions as the lexicon evolves.

Learn more about the Multilingual Glossary on the ACRL IS website.​

[Note: When people ask why spend the money or time to be part of an association, I point to this sort of focused effort made possible by the crowd-sourced work of dedicated library staff who volunteer time and effort to create needed resources within associations. Associations push the profession forward. We are the engine that powers great resources and resource sharing through our association work]
