Title
Scope notes for LISA subject headings
Source
Online review. 16(1992) no.1, S.3-16
Year

Abstract
Scope notes are added to some subject headings in thesauri to make their scope, meaning, usage and history clearer to users. In the thesaurus contained in the first edition of the online user manual for LISA (OUM1), scope notes are used for 7 message types and in one case 15 note patterns are used to express the same meaning. In the second edition (OUM2) the scope notes are expressed more consistently, and are mainly used to indicate indexing errors. Many note in OUM1 refer to the use of terms in the LISA faceted classification scheme, but this schem is not adequately explained in the introductions to either OUM1, OUM2 or the printed versions of LISA. In OUM2 there are few notes for the use of terms in combination; however, terms are still used in combination with guidance being given through USE references. In some cases the notes are unnecessary because extra headings have been added to the thesaurus. Concludes that scope notes are essential to make thesauri effective and easy to use as tools for searching online and printed information services and scope notes should be carefully consructed and added to any term where meaning and use in the database could be ambiguous
