Introduction to Controlled Vocabularies - Enhancing Access to Cultural Heritage Information

Paperback / softback
Digital networking, such as on the World Wide Web, makes our global cultural heritage accessible to an ever-widening audience. To reach this audience and ensure researchers can find the information they seek, consistent terminology for the language used in information retrieval contexts is essential. Introduction to Vocabularies explains, demonstrates, and advocates the use of controlled vocabularies in describing, cataloging, and documenting cultural heritage information.
