CPC Develops Thesaurus for Population Field

The Population/Family Planning Thesaurus was developed by CPC's Technical Information Services. It was developed to answer a need for population researchers to more easily and accurately search for and retrieve articles and books about population. Though the thesaurus was used primarily by population librarians and indexers, it also provided population scholars with a common set of terms and concepts to describe the population field and related literature. This thesaurus and another created by Columbia University were the foundation for the POPLINE keywords. First published in 1975 as a 286-page book, this excerpt provides a description of the thesaurus, examples of how it should be used, and part of the alphabetical list of terms.
