JSTOR is a digital library of more than 1,500 academic journals, books, and primary sources. These holdings comprise a wide range of topics from the humanities to the sciences. There does not exist today one single thesaurus that holds the terms to cover all these subjects. JSTOR has a reputation for quality metadata and quality images. We bring many forces to bear on maintaining the quality of our content. So, we strive to have a JSTOR Thesaurus that will be a high-quality enhancement of our content. This presentation will cover the steps and the issues in creating our thesaurus.

Presenter: Nancy Murray, ITHAKA/JSTOR
