Title
Criteria for the evaluation of thesaurus software

Abstract
The growing number of thesaurus programs, especially for microcomputers, calls for criteria which facilitate the decision on the appropriate tools for thesaurus construction, application and maintenance. Following a brief outline of the determinants of the criteria, i.e. the changing environment and the routines of thesaurus management and application, criteria are discussed in detail. Only the most important requirements relating to central functions of thesaurus work are touched upon, further criteria being included in a check-list attached. Applying the criteria to existing thesaurus software in a final short assessement, the author concludes that some programs reveal substantial shortcomings
