Thesaurus: Mass Communication.
Produced for UNESCO on the initiative of the Division of Communication Research and Planning, this thesaurus is a documentation language divised for the purpose of analyzing works, articles, reports, and other documents relating to the problems of mass communication according to the particular medium to which they refer: books, the press, records, films, radio, or television. While its main purpose is to characterize the information in a sufficiently precise manner to allow post-storage retrieval of the documents containing it, it has the secondary purpose of enabling queries to be expressed in a form which will match the information available. The thesaurus is in two parts: Part 1 is a multilingual document containing English, French, and Spanish descriptors listed by subject fields; Part 2 is an alphabetical list of descriptors in English.
