ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., May 7 -- Access Innovations, Inc. (Access), a leader in the data management industry, announced that the 5th Edition of Engineering Information's Ei Thesaurus has been completed using Access's Thesaurus Master tool.
Engineering Information (Ei) contracted with Access to use Thesaurus Master to update the Ei Thesaurus, a controlled vocabulary system comprising over 19,000 terms used to classify Ei's Compendex® database. Ei's thesaurus update was simplified and facilitated through the versatility and flexibility of Thesaurus Master.
Thesaurus Master's powerful software allows users to construct a thesaurus using the term as the key building block. Thesaurus Master expedites the search process by permitting the users to maneuver through a term list hierarchy, employ several ways to relate terms to one another, and add notes to each term. Combining with other components within Access's Data Harmony software suite, Thesaurus Master also is available in stand-alone mode.
"Our customers depend on Ei for our ability to identify and meaningfully classify engineering content," observed Judy Salk, Ei's Director of Editorial Operations. "As engineering disciplines advance and evolve, our objective is for the Ei Thesaurus to continuously reflect changes in the field."
Marjorie Hlava, Access President, responded: "Ei required the ability to maintain their competitive edge by updating their information tools for the database. Thesaurus Master allowed Ei to accomplish this with ease and accuracy. The addition of 1,075 terms brings their thesaurus to the cutting edge of engineering."
