Abstract
Maintaining a thesaurus is a time-consuming task which should go hand-in-hand with the indexing of information and should be supported by software. To connect different document databases their respective thesauri should be related. The most straightforward way to support to support this by computer is to map the terms of one thesaurus to those of another. Such a mapping creates one kind of metathesaurus. As citation systems are extended to include full-text online, a new thesaurus may be used to index individual paragraphs. To illustrate these principles several computer systems are described which help people maintain thesauri and metathesauri. Particular success has been had by the National Library of Medicine with its Medical Subject Headings and its Unified Medical Language System
