Fabricating and Prefabricating Language: Troubling Trends in Libraries.
Candido, Anne Marie
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v25 n6 p433-38 Nov 1999
Focuses on the current linguistic trends in libraries where use of jargon borrowed from business and computer technology is jeopardizing humanistic expression. Discusses common characteristics of the specialized language; levels of library jargon and obscure language; the danger of specialization to the future of libraries; influences from other specialized fields; and the need to challenge these trends.
