Gale Library Science Thesaurus

The Gale Library Science Thesaurus is a subset of the master Gale Social Sciences thesaurus in the narrower domain of organizing knowledge and information, other than the purely philosophical terms. Also covered are library processes such as cataloging, as well as the business aspects such as abstracting and indexing services. Terms also describe kinds of libraries (e.g., government libraries, medical libraries) and cover related fields of information science, knowledge management, and information storage and retrieval.
