CIS Thesaurus

The CIS Thesaurus contains the terms used to index documents in CISDOC, the bibliographic database of the International Labour Office's International Occupational Safety and Health Information Centre (CIS). To make it easy to find all the documents that refer to a particular subject, CIS always uses the same words, although the subject may be described in many different ways in different documents. In CISDOC, documents are always described in English and French, and an increasing number are being described in Spanish as well. These descriptions include the index entries, so the CIS Thesaurus is fully trilingual.

Characteristics Comments: 

Because the alphabetical order of terms is different in each language, each set of terms in English, French and Spanish has a unique identifier called a facet that is used to organize the CIS Thesaurus by subject. Each term can have only one broader term, but may have more than one narrower term.
