Customer-Focused Thesauri

2:00 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.
Heather Hedden, Senior Vocabulary Editor, Gale/Cengage Learning, USA

Thesauri support consistent indexing, and high precision and recall in retrieval in research databases, but on the customer end, thesauri are often overlooked in user interfaces which promote a simplified search experience. Hear about the features and benefits of a thesaurus, how the “hidden” thesaurus can be found, and see through subscription database demos and screenshots. As editor of the Gale subject thesaurus, our speaker hopes to encourage librarians to guide, train, and/or provide documentation to users to encourage them to find and make use of a database’s thesaurus to get the most accurate results.
