Editors may find the following sites useful, especially to look up a specific word in Spanish (Google Translate) or as vocabulary enrichment (Palabra del Día, Word of the Day). The LMP site and the American Society for Indexing links are provided for quick and easy reference. A guide to name authorities is also included for librarians and others using name authorities in databases.

Literary Marketplace (LMP)

Literary Marketplace is a listing of useful services for publishers; quick reference tool for other book folk.

American Society for Indexing

The American Society for Indexing is the only professional organization in the U.S. devoted solely to the advancement of indexing, abstracting and database building. We have been members of the Society since 1995.

Google Translate

Google Translate has become the go-to site for a word or phrase translated (from Spanish to English or vice versa). Usually it’s quicker than rummaging through a language dictionary. Good for the most updated term though occasionally a little sparse on rare or antiquated words, since it appears to rely on users to edit existing entries.

La Página del Idioma Español

The Word of the Day in Spanish/La Palabra del Día is sent to subscribers around the world from Spain several times a week. This site offers the etymology of common and somewhat-less-than-common Spanish words. A great way to enrich one’s vocabulary and deepen your appreciation of the language of Cervantes.

Name Authorities

The VIAF® (Virtual International Authority File) combines multiple name authority files into a single OCLC-hosted name authority service. The goal of the service is to lower the cost and increase the utility of library authority files by matching and linking widely-used authority files and making that information available on the Web.
