Wessex Annotated Subject Heading Index

"This annotated index to the Wessex Classification Scheme was produced primarily for cataloguers within the SWIMS Network (formerly SWRLIN) Cataloguing Co-operative. The Classification Scheme has been adopted by other library networks in the UK and is widely used. Each indexing term in the annotated index refers to a suggested classification number or numbers within the Wessex Scheme. The index, however, should never be used as a classification tool on its own.

Wessex Classification Scheme

"The Wessex Classification Scheme is a revision of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) schedules incorporating current UK medical and health practice. The scheme was originally created by the librarians of the Wessex Regional Library and Information Network (WRLIN) and is now overseen by a working group of the SWIMS Network and other users of the scheme."

Information Literacy Thesaurus

"This project is working with the Journal of Information Literacy (JIL) to develop a thesaurus for the field of information literacy based on a keyword list compiled by them, and then to publish it as a linked open thesaurus that adheres to the SKOS standard as recommended by the W3C. It is hoped that this will aid in the search process, helping to improve discoverability of articles published by JIL, and to allow for the possibility of the thesaurus to be utilized by other datasets.
