British Education Thesaurus

English Abstract: 

"The British Education Index continues to serve its original, 50-year old, purpose as an independent subject and author index to the contents of significant education journals published in the UK. Within limitiations imposed by its self-financing status, the BEI also seeks to identify information from an increasingly diverse research environment, particularly addressing texts on the Internet and events, as detailed below. All BEI services are created and maintained by staff whose costs are met by income from royalties and from occasional contracted work, and who use custom-built but potentially widely exploitable information management tools to do their work. The British Education Thesaurus vocabulary was used for subject indexing, for example, allowing for the eventual closer connection between Education-line and the BEI database. (The British Education Thesaurus was first produced by the BEI in 1988 to provide a means to facilitate consistent subject indexing of literature by the Index.)"
