Earlier this year Paul Bourcier’s blog “For the Record: Nomenclature…Moving 4-ward” ended with thanking everyone who contributed to this edition of Nomenclature, because “this product is truly a group effort.”

Indeed, Nomenclature 4.0 is a group effort and the task force extends thanks once again to everyone who suggested terms and ideas for this new book! In fact, this edition incorporates many new terms in direct response to recommendations made and needs expressed by colleagues ‘in the trenches’ of collections and collections records management.
