Evaluation of Thesaurus Enhanced Search Systems



Introduction


I chose to evaluate the thesauri of the British Humanities Index (BHI) and the UK Data Archive. These are both archives that deal with information in the area of the humanities, so it should be possible to compare similar searches. First I will describe the features of the thesauri, such as navigation and interface. Then I will compare the search process in the two thesauri.


The two thesauri are:
British Humanities Index (UofA ID is needed to access)
UK Data Archive
