Still, Julie
Microcomputers for Information Management, v13 n3-4 p301-10 1996
British and American information science textbooks present keyword and controlled vocabulary searching in different ways, and put differing emphases on the use of variant spellings and word variations. This reflects the differing ways that information professionals prepare online search strategies. Differences may reflect occupational trends, cultural behavior, or awareness of a greater world view.
