Science and Technology in International Affairs: Dictionaries
Subguide to the International Affairs Guide, this guide discusses resources on sci/tech including information and communications technology (ICT).
"The first edition of the McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, published in 1974, was a response to the inadequate representation of scientific terminology in general English language dictionaries. It was a time when the fruits of research and development in the era following World War II were transforming everyday life in areas ranging from medicine, to transportation, to telecommunications and computing. Humans had already landed on the moon; the creation of the Internet had begun; the first microprocessors were in operation; and the revolution in molecular biology was underway. English was becoming more and more the common language of scientific research.
This sixth edition of the McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms continues to serve the needs of both the scientific community and the general reader for high quality information, and to contribute to scientific education and technological literacy."
