Every calling and profession has its own jargon, perfectly intelligible to the initiate, though but half understood by the rest of the world… Coined words, as the verbs ‘to accession,’ ‘to shelf-list,’ are in all conscience bad enough, but chief of the startling and novel crop of new phrases in our calling is the term ‘reference librarian.’

William Warner Bishop, Librarian of the University of Michigan | The Backs of Books, and Other Essays in Librarianship, 1926 (via thepinakes)
