A Women's Thesaurus

"The language of standard indexing and classification systems-terms used in most journals, libraries, filing systems, and databases-does not offer vocabulary consistently or sufficiently detailed and up-to-date to retrieve the wealth of resources available. Existing classifications frequently overlook emerging topics of special concern to women. As a result, important information is lumped under 'women' or is inaccessible.

thesaurA

"Mit dieser Projektidee thesaurA - die Bezeichnung stellt die feministische Umformung des männlichen Begriffs 'Thesaurus' dar und akzentuiert durch die Großschreibung der femininen Endung den österreichspezifischen Ansatz -, wurde ein Konzept aufgegriffen, das international bereits mehrfach umgesetzt worden war: Bereits in den 70er Jahren war der amerikanische Thesaurus 'On Equal Terms' erschienen; der erste deutschsprachige Thesaurus wurde 1994 vom Kölner 'FrauenMediaTurm' herausgegeben.

"With this project idea thesaurA - the name represents the feminist transformation of the male term 'thesaurus' and accentuated by the capitalization of the feminine ending the Austrian-specific approach - a concept was adopted which had already been implemented several times internationally: already in the 70s The American Thesaurus 'On Equal Terms' had been published, the first German-language thesaurus was published in 1994 by the Cologne 'FrauenMediaTurm'.

Feministischer Thesaurus

"Neue Gedanken von Frauen brauchen neue Begriffe. Die Sexualpolitik. Die Männerjustiz. Oder die 'neue Ethik' zum Beispiel, ein Begriff aus der historischen Frauenbewegung. Nach den Amerikanerinnen, Kanadierinnen, Spanierinnen und Holländerinnen legen jetzt auch deutsche Dokumentarinnen eine erste systematische Erfassung dieser Begriffe vor, einen Thesaurus. Er dient in der Erfassung, Analyse und Vermittlung von Inhalten."

Tesauro para Estudos de Gênero e sobre Mulheres

"A classificação por cabeçalhos de assunto, sem as devidas e constantes reavaliações e atualizações feitas por especialistas de cada campo de estudos, tende a se tornar um amontoado de palavras com pouca eficácia para a coleta, o armazenamento e a recuperação dos documentos. Se no caso de bibliotecas de maior porte, capacitadas para atualizar as suas listas de cabeçalhos, esta classificação é válida, a biblioteca de um instituto de pesquisa com programas de estudos bem delineados deveria amparar os seus pesquisadores com indexações baseadas preferencialmente em tesauros específicos.

"Classification by subject headings, without the proper and constant reevaluations and updates made by experts from each field of study, tends to become a pile of words with little efficacy for the collection, storage and retrieval of documents. In the case of larger libraries, able to update their headline lists, this classification is valid, the library of a research institute with well-designed study programs should support its researchers with indexes based on specific thesauri.
