Abstract
Web-based technology enables virtual production environments to be created in which teams of both in-house staff and remotely-based contractors can work together on thesaurus construction and indexing projects. For the past four years Synapse, the Knowledge Link Corporation has been developing a sophisticated web-based thesaurus construction, indexing and knowledge management software application. The Gale Group has been licensing the application since 1997, providing a virtual production environment for large-scale thesaurus construction and reference-content indexing projects. Synapse Corporation and The Gale Group jointly present the session "Lexicography Without Limits - A Web-Based Solution" to illustrate how web-based technology provides new solutions for the tasks of vocabulary development and indexing. Vocabulary development and indexing projects frequently require project teams to be assembled using contract lexicographers, indexers and editors to supplement in-house resources. Synapse Corporation, a company specializing in providing lexicography and indexing services, has developed a software solution that enables information specialists, who may be based in different organizational entities and geographic locations, to have real-time editorial access to centralized databases. The Synaptica software application can be accessed from anywhere in the world using standard web browsers. Each client project is hosted at a unique, secured web site and users are granted password-protected access. Synaptica supports the construction of ANSI/NISO Z39.19 [1] compliant electronic thesauri, and also has many additional components that integrate related tasks such as authority control and indexing. The presentation will examine The Gale Group as a case study and will discuss the practical issues of managing remote teams of lexicographers and indexers as well as illustrating the software functionality
