A library (from French "librairie"; Latin "liber" = book) is an organized collection of information resources made accessible to a defined community

for reference or borrowing. It provides physical or digital access to material, and may be a physical building or room, or a virtual space, or both. A library's collection can include books, periodicals, newspapers, manuscripts, films, maps, prints, documents,microform, CDs, cassettes, videotapes, DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, ebooks, audiobooks, databases, and other formats. Libraries range in size from a few shelves of books to several million items. In Latin and Greek, the idea of bookcase is represented by Bibliotheca andBibliothēkē (Greek: βιβλιοθήκη): derivatives of these mean library in many modern languages, e.g. French bibliothèque.

Role of the library Education has been defined as a complex of social processes for acquiring knowledge and experience, formally or otherwise.Ogunsheye (1981) states that it involves the total apparatus used for the development of the individual. In this paper an adult is someone of fifteen years plus who is responsible for himself and others, and who probably missed the opportunity of attending formal school due to financial problems or other factors, or had gone to school but dropped out after spending one, two, or three years. In Nigeria, the majority of illiterates belong to this group. The purpose of adult education is to continue the education of the adult so that: A State of literacy may be attained and maintained; The adult may continuously improve his knowledge and skills; The individual is enabled to adjust to existing social, political, and economic systems; The adult may be made aware of the common citizenship, cultural heritage, and social values, and thus adapt to changing roles in adult life; The individual may develop his personality and full potential, widening the range of his perception, interest and skills. (Ogunseye 1981, pp. 232) The library enables the individual to obtain spiritual, inspirational, and recreational activity through reading, and therefore the opportunity of interacting with the society’s wealth and accumulated knowledge(Omojuwa 1993). The library can be seen as an extension of adult education. One part of the mission of the library is the same as the mission of adult education (Omolewa 1981).

A dictionary (also called a wordstock, word reference, wordbook, lexicon, or vocabulary) is a collection of words in one or more specific
languages, often listed alphabetically (or by radical and stroke for ideographic languages), with usage information, definitions, etymologies, phonetics, pronunciations, and other information;[1] or a book of words in one language with their equivalents in another, also known as a lexicon.[1] According to Nielsen (2008) a dictionary may be regarded as a lexicographical product that is characterised by three significant features: (1) it has been prepared for one or more functions; (2) it contains data that have been selected for the purpose of fulfilling those functions; and (3) its lexicographic structures link and establish relationships between the data so that they can meet the needs of users and fulfill the functions of the dictionary. The main objective in this session is to classify the main types of dictionary, of which there are many, in terms of their characteristic properties. Tasks:

 

Search the web for different kinds of dictionary (see the examples listed below). Create a table relating the following two domains: 1. dictionary types, 2. characteristic properties of dictionaries (including a definition of each type).

Some dictionary types are: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. semasiological and onomasiological perspectives, monoloingual, bilingual and multilingual dictionaries, concordances, terminology dictionaries, lexica, thesauri, encyclopaedias, lexical databases. The three main kinds of properties which dictionaries have can be summarised in terms of the following three concepts, which refer to the structure of dictionaries:

Microstructure: the structure of individual lexical entries, including types of lexical information and the way in which types of lexical information are organised, Mesostructure:
