From thesaurus to ontology: the development of the Kaunokki Finnish fiction thesaurus
Abstract:Jarmo Saarti and Kaisa Hypén look briefly at pre-computer age fiction retrieval methods. They discuss the challenges works of fiction present in the information management and retrieval context and the need to develop fiction indexing tools suitable for web-based services, and describe how the creation of Kaunokki – the Finnish fiction thesaurus – in 1996, and its development into the Kirjasampo-SAHA web service for readers and librarians, are helping to meet these challenges.

- The Indexer is published by the Society of Indexers on behalf of all the indexing societies, seeks to cover the full range of subjects, from articles at the cutting edge of new techniques to contributions discussing in a practical way the new tools available to indexers at all points in the technical spectrum or exploring the history of indexing. Its extensive reviews section covers both printed and electronic material, including websites and hardware and software of interest to the indexer, while 'Indexes Reviewed' highlights some of the best (and worst) examples of indexing in action. And, in 'Around the World', it keeps readers up to date with what is going on across the international indexing community. First published in 1958 on a twice-yearly basis, it moved in 2008 to a quarterly publication.
