Thesaurus of Parasitologyby Jolene M. Miller
This project examined the issues involved in thesaurus construction
and undertook the construction of a thesaurus of parasitology,
focusing on areas of economic concern: medical and veterinary
parasitology, with supporting terms drawn from ecology and
epidemiology. It was developed as a searching thesaurus as
opposed to one primarily used for indexing purposes. It contains
a large number of lead-in terms which can be used for free-text
searching in databases which do not use controlled vocabularies
(as primary means of access) and also those which do
(supplementing the use of controlled vocabulary). The final
product is a two-part thesaurus consisting of a hierarchical
term listing and an alphabetical listing.
