Guidelines for the Establishment and Development of Monolingual Scientific and Technical Thesauri for Information Retrieval.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
These guidelines for the establishment and development of monolingual scientific and technical thesauri for information retrieval are published in an attempt to lay the basis for compatability, both at the present and in the future, of thesauri that are being elaborated simultaneously in most of the disciplines of science, basic as well as applied. They are therefore, directed to all those who in the course of their careers come into contact with thesauri, either as users or as thesaurus compilers. Fourteen guidelines are present: the first four are of a general nature, the following seven deal with the establishment of thesauri, and the final three relate to the development of thesauri. These guidelines are specifically drafted in the English language and when applied to monolingual thesauri in other languages should be modified to take into consideration the attributes and uses of that particular language.
