A Glossary for Library Networking. Network Planning Paper Number 2, 1978.
Dataflow Systems Inc., Bethesda, MD.
This glossary was developed to fill the need for a commonality of vocabulary for the persons from diverse fields--computer experts, librarians, telecommunications engineers--who are working together in the relatively new field of library networking. The criteria for the inclusion of a term require that it be in current use relative to library networking, that it be a term unfamiliar to the library community but basic to its comprehension of library networking, or that the term's standard meaning be narrowed or modified by its use in a library networking context. The definitions are functional rather than formal. (Author/MBR)
