Derwent Biotechnology Abstracts Thesaurus

"Generic terms (Higher Terms) associated with specific keywords are indicated by the use of the abbreviation 'h.t.'. This means that whenever the specific term appears in the file, the corresponding Higher Term(s) will also appear and can be searched instead of the specific keyword if a broader search is desired. The abbreviation 's.a.' (see also) is used to indicate a related term which may also be worth considering in a search. Some terms have been altered since the start of the database and this is indicated by the use of the word 'was'.

International Classification of Headache Disorders

"This classification is hierarchical and you must decide how detailed you want to make your diagnosis. This can range from the first-digit level to the fourth. First one gets a rough idea about which group the patient belongs to. Is it for example 1. Migraine or 2. Tension-type headache or 3. Cluster headache and other trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias? Then one obtains information allowing a more detailed diagnosis. The desired detail depends on the purpose.

Public Health Language

"The Health Development Agency and England's Public Health Observatories (PHO's) have developed a unified Public Health Language (PHL) [formally known as the National Public Health Language] to facilitate interoperability. The first version of this language was officially launched at a conference on the 20th December 2004. The PHL is the result of integrating the former HDA's 'Public Health Information Thesaurus' with the PHOs 'Public Health Information Tagging System' (PHITS), which are no longer active as they have been superseded by the PHL.

British Museum Object Names Thesaurus

"A Collections Data Management Section (CDMS) Working Party was set up in the 1980s to analyse the terms used to record object names in the British Museum, and to incorporate them into an on-line thesaurus. Hierarchical and other standard thesaural relationships were added, as well as explanatory notes where appropriate. The thesaurus architecture is based on ISO 2788. Curatorial advice has been sought at all stages of the project, and a number of publications were consulted, which are listed in the bibliography.

British Museum Materials Thesaurus

"The decision to publish The British Museum materials thesaurus was based on the interest shown in it over the years by visiting documentation specialists, and their requests for copies. In my opinion, the thesaurus is unique, due to the great range of terms included, the inevitable consequence of documenting world-wide collections from almost any historical period, a great variety of cultures, and covering almost any type of object.
