"This slim volume represents a state-of-the-art shapshot of the field of information science and deserves a place in every reference collection. Its coverage is commendably comprehensive...Two special features add significantly to the value of this work: Most of the definitions are referenced to one or more entries in a three-hundred-item bibliography...Also of special note is the eighteen-page subject outline to which every entry is indexed. This outline allows the user to identify broader, narrower, or related terms and to place specific ideas in a broader context...A significant contribution to the field."
"This dictionary brings together many of those terms and concepts that are essential for librarians to meet todays technological demands."
—AMERICAN REFERENCE BOOKS ANNUAL, ARBA 93
"Clearly a market among libraries....Now that I've seen the finished product, I think that the coverage is good enough that I'll want my own personal copy for daily use. Just about everything you always wanted to know and didn't know how to find out about information science is in there."
