Library terms in six languages

Posted by lrath on July 13, 2006

This Multilingual Glossary is designed to serve international students and scholars who come to use libraries in American universities and colleges for the first time. It consists of forty-seven (47) of the most commonly used terms in academic libraries today. The Glossary is divided into two parts: the Language Table, which presents a list of the terms in six languages; and the Definitions, which give explanations in English for each of the terms.” Library terms appear in English, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, French, and Spanish. This resource was created by the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL).

Newman Library created a virtual tour that can be viewed in English, Spanish, Russian, Turkish, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (simple and traditional).

    Are there any library help guides in languages other than the six used in the multilingual glossary?
