Abstract:

In development of a computerized information system it is essential to have a controlled vocabulary for both input and search purposes. The Diving Information Center DIC at the U.S. Navy Experimental Diving Unit is developing a computerized system, utilizing inputs from the data bases at Diver Equipment Information Center at Battelle Columbus Laboratories and the Undersea Medical Society, as well as internal EDU inputs. It is important that the three input systems be compatible. A thesaurus was developed to provide that compatibility by integrating and correlating the current indexing terms from the above three systems into one thesaurus. Provision was made for the addition of the new terms. This edition of the thesaurus updates and replaces the previous edition.
