Search Engines and Library Databases employ controlled vocabularies to assign subject headings for the purpose of organizing and connecting information resources that are similar in scope. In addition, subject headings are organized in a searchable thesaurus (e.g. MeSH) so researchers can find information quickly, without the hassle of "guess work".
For instance, a single article will be assigned numerous subject headings by the database, contain subject headings submitted by the author(s), and scores of important and searchable keywords.
One step in becoming an effective searcher is to develop a Synonym Ring using Term Identification.
Develop a Synonym Ring by creating a concise list of terms that you want to use for each important keyword/subject.
