Abstract

An algorithm is presented that provides a basis for navigating databases for the indexer or the user who wants to formulate a query. The navigation process automatically identifies concepts related to key words or to other selected terms and thus suggests richer ways of accessing information. In contrast to indexing tools based on thesaurus systems like MeSH which can contain hand-coded 'related-to' links in their record structures, relatedness allows for an automatic way of identifying, or at least suggesting, the related concepts. The algorithm is implemented in Interlisp on the Xerox 1109 workstation and uses a prototype taxonomy being developed for the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS).
