Title
Signposts to information : keywords, indexes and thesauri
Source
Education libraries journal. 36(1993) no.3, S.7-27
Year
1993
Abstract
Shortened and revised version of a paper presented during an Education Librarian's Group session at the Under One Umbrella Two Conference, organized by the Library Association in Manchester, 9-11 Jul 93. With the possibility of free text searching and easy access to CD-ROM databases, users often do not realise that subject searching is enhanced by familiarity with the controlled vocabulary underlying the indexing system of the database. Discusses the construction of information retrieval thesauri, the problems of terminology and how the use of thesauri can make searching more effective, using education thesauri as examples
