Why Do I Need a Library Glossary of Terms?

Is Library Language Different?

Your instructor said you need at least three articles from a periodical, but what's a periodical? And what is the difference between a dictionary and a thesaurus?

Like any workplace, the library has it's own language, and odds are, if you use the library you may run into a term with which you are not familiar. If you are in the library, ask a librarian, we will be happy to let you know what all the fuss it about.

But if you can't make it to the library and you see a term on an assignment or a library resource that you don't recognize, you can use this guide for a quick reference.

If you don't find what you are looking for in this guide, use the Get Help! tab to contact a librarian for more assistance.
