Summary

The first paper, "The Language of Term Relation Designations in Subject Access Vocabularies," contains a set of tables comparing certain features of ten thesauri and subject authority lists. The purpose of this essay is to present a kind of analysis that may have value in clarifying the language and structure of subject access vocabularies with a view to achieving maximum compatibility among them. The second paper, "The Specific-to-General See Reference in Thesaurus Construction" advances the proposition that the employment of the specific-to-general see reference is a faulty element in the structure of subject access vocabularies. The reference aknowledges the existence of a specific subject but denies the searcher direct access to material on that subject through a specific subject heading or index term. As a consequence, review of an undeterminable amount of non-relevant material is required in the retrieval process. The specific-to-general see reference should be vocabularies. See references should be limited to synonyms, antonyms, and alternative forms. (MF)
