Multiple entry points: variants and cross-references in indexes and thesauri

Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (The) (2016), 34, (4), 155–160.

Abstract

Indexes point to information, but sometimes multiple pointers are needed for the same information destination. This article reviews the use of See references and double posts in indexes, and then looks at how cross-references are used in thesauri and taxonomies. The focus is on the craft of coming up with synonyms and alternative phrases in indexes and thesauri, how they can be used to reduce scatter, and how they may differ between the two, and between print and online in general.
