Abstract

Thesaurus-based automatic indexing and automatic authority control share common ground as word-matching processes. To demonstrate the resemblance, an experimental system utilizing automatic indexing as its core process was implemented to perform authority control on a collection of bibliographic records. Details of the system are given and results discussed. The benefits of exploiting the resemblance between the two systems are examined
