Library Science
LIBRARY SCIENCE (often termed LIBRARY STUDIES, LIBRARY AND INFORMATION SCIENCE, BIBLIOTHECOGRAPHY, LIBRARY ECONOMY) is an interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary field that applies the practices, perspectives, and tools of management , information technology, education, and other areas to libraries ; the collection, organization, preservation , and dissemination of information resources; and the political economy of information. Martin Schrettinger , a Bavarian librarian, coined the discipline within his work (1808-1828) Versuch eines vollständigen Lehrbuchs der Bibliothek-Wissenschaft oder Anleitung zur vollkommenen Geschäftsführung eines Bibliothekars. Rather than classifying information based on nature-oriented elements, as was previously done in his Bavarian library, Schrettinger organized books in alphabetical order. The first American school for library science was founded by Melvil Dewey at Columbia University

Library Catalog
A LIBRARY CATALOG or LIBRARY CATALOGUE is a register of all bibliographic items found in a library or group of libraries, such as a network of libraries at several locations. A bibliographic item can be any information entity (e.g., books, computer files, graphics, realia , cartographic materials, etc.) that is considered library material (e.g., a single novel in an anthology ), or a group of library materials (e.g., a trilogy ), or linked from the catalog (e.g., a webpage) as far as it is relevant to the catalog and to the users (patrons) of the library. The CARD CATALOG was a familiar sight to library users for generations, but it has been effectively replaced by the online public access catalog (OPAC). Some still refer to the online catalog as a "card catalog". Some libraries with OPAC access still have card catalogs on site, but these are now strictly a secondary resource and are seldom updated

Inter-library Loan
INTERLIBRARY LOAN (abbreviated ILL, and sometimes called INTERLOAN, INTERLENDING, DOCUMENT DELIVERY, or DOCUMENT SUPPLY) is a service whereby a patron of one library can borrow books, DVDs, music, etc. and/or receive photocopies of documents that are owned by another library. The user makes a request with their home library; which, acting as an intermediary, identifies libraries with the desired item, places the request, receives the item, makes it available to the user, as well as arranges for its return. The lending library usually sets a due date and overdue fees of the material borrowed. Although books and journal articles are the most frequently requested items, some libraries will lend audio recordings, video recordings, maps, sheet music, and microforms of all kinds. In some cases, nominal fees accompany the interlibrary loan services
