Our guest will be Dorothea Salo, Digital Repository Librarian at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Library.

Discussion Confused about ALA Acronyms?

by Jenny Levine (staff) on Fri, Jun 5, 2009 at 10:26 am

There's a very extensive list of acronyms for both ALA and librarianship that the ALA Library maintains on the ALA website. If you have suggestions for additions, you can contact them at library@ala.org or leave a comment here.

And don't forget you can play along with The Wheel of Confusion.

Sincerely,
