An ACRL Committee Releases “Multilingual Glossary for Today’s Library Users”
From the ACRL Instruction Section Website:
The Instruction for Diverse Populations Committee of the ACRL Instruction Section is pleased to present the Multilingual Glossary for Today’s Library Users, now available as a Google Doc. This multilingual glossary includes a language table of commonly-used library terms presented in seven languages, and definitions for each term in English. These documents are designed to assist ESL speakers and the librarians who work with them.
The committee acknowledges that these resources are not comprehensive, nor do they reflect the many dialects and nuances within each language. Due to these known limitations, we encourage users of the Multilingual Glossary to adapt this resource to meet the needs of your community.

From the Resource Website:
The Glossary is divided into two parts: (1) the Language Table, which presents a list of these terms in seven languages, and (2) the Definitions, which give explanations in English for each of the terms.
