"Thesaurus Design for Semantic Information Management" is the theme of this seminar to be taught by Dr. Bella Hass Weinberg, Professor, Division of Library and Information Science, St. John's University.

The seminar will introduce the design of controlled vocabularies for indexing and searching, covering semantic relationships, thesaurus format, and screen display. Computer-assisted techniques of thesaurus development and natural language search strategies will also be discussed.

Information architects, librarians, indexers, and technical writers should benefit from the seminar. Prior seminars have been rated "excellent" by the vast majority attendees, including experienced thesaurus designers.

She is a Past President of the Association of Indexers and the recipient of its Hines Award. At St. John's, Professor Weinberg teaches graduate courses in information science, indexing and abstracting, thesaurus design, and information architecture. Dr. Weinberg consults on the design of thesauri and indexes, has done research on thesaurus structure, and publishes extensively on linguistics and information science.
