Abstract

Controlled vocabularies, thesauri, and taxonomies comprise a field that is closely related to indexing. Some indexers already do work in these areas, and others could find themselves called to do such work soon. Therefore, it is important for indexers to be familiar with these tools/methods for organizing information. This brief article defines the concepts more fully.
