Online Dictionary for Library and Information Science (OLDIS) / Joan M. Reitz

Online Dictionary for Library and Information Science (OLDIS) / Joan M. Reitz | SCIS | Scoop.it
"ODLIS is designed as a hypertext reference resource for library and information science professionals, university students and faculty, and users of all types of libraries. The primary criterion for including a term is whether a librarian or other information professional might reasonably be expected to know its meaning in the context of his or her work. A newly coined term is added when, in the author's judgment, it is likely to become a permanent addition to the lexicon of library and information science."

One such reader is NewsSquares, a Chrome app specifically catered to the interests of news readers. While still in the final beta stages, NewsSquares is a great way to browse your various news feeds while enjoying a very visually appealing means of access.
