International Directory of Libraries and Documentation Centres in Terminology = Repertoire international des biblioteques et des centres de documentation en terminologie.
Cousineau, Marie-Josee, Comp.
Designed to assist terminologists, translators, librarians, and documentalists by promoting resource-sharing, networking, and cooperation in the transfer and dissemination of international terminological data, this directory lists information resources and reference services available from 60 libraries and documentation centers around the world. Profiles of these libraries and centers are presented in either French or English, depending on the language and by the respondent, with bilingual headings, and each entry, for the most part, provides: (1) the official name of the organization with which the library/documentation center is affiliated (names in Greek, Russian, Arabic or other non-Roman alphabets have been transliterated); (2) address; (3) other official name(s); (4) any unofficial name(s); (5) parent organization; (6) founding date; (7) staff; (8) primary clientele; (9) subject field(s); (10) collection(s); (11) specialized collection(s); (12) language(s) in the collection as a whole; (13) services; (14) access; (15) cooperation; (16) databases; (17) terminological data; (18) publications; and (19) library branches. Four indexes are provided: a combined index to organizations, acronyms, and abbreviations; an index to acronyms and abbreviations; a subject index; and a personal name index. This directory is the first product of the Clearinghouse for Bibliographic Exchange in Terminology (ClearTerm), which was created in April 1985 during the second Infoterm Symposium in Vienna. (CGD)
