From Liane Hanson, Letters, Weekend Edition, National Public Radio, June 24, 2000.
"A correction to make now, because last week I referred to the initials PBS as an
acronym. Tom Blake [sent a letter which] read, 'An acronym is, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, a word formed from the initial
letters of other words. NASA and laser are good examples of acronyms. On the other hand, an initialism, according to the
OED, is a group of initial letters used as an abbreviation for a name or expression, each letter or part being pronounced
separately. CIA, FBI, IRS, NPR and PBS are all examples of initialisms.'
Hence, librarians, take note! ALA, LLA, SLA, ACRL, etc., are initialisms and not acronyms.
