Glossary

Abstract

A concise summary of the key points of a larger work, often used to assist the reader in determining if that work is likely to be of use.

Accession

The materials may be acquired by gift, bequest, purchase, transfer, retention schedule, or statute. An accession may be part of a larger, existing collection. An accession added to existing collections is sometimes called an accretion or an accrual. 'Accession' should be distinguished from 'acquisition'. As nouns, they are synonymous. However, the verb 'accession' goes far beyond the sense of 'acquire', connoting the initial steps of processing by establishing rudimentary physical and intellectual control over the materials by entering brief information about those materials in a register, database, or other log of the repository's holdings.
