NNLM’s Data Thesaurus Provides Key Tools for Data-Driven Exploration

Posted by on January 12th, 2021 Posted in: Data


Are you struggling to find a simple definition for key data terminologies? Wondering where to find resources and relevant literature regarding data vocabularies? Look no further! The Network of the National Library of Medicine’s Data Thesaurus provides key tools for data-driven exploration.

The Data Thesaurus is a resource connecting and defining concepts, services, and tools relevant to librarians working in data-driven discovery. A definition, relevant literature, and web resources accompany each term along with links to related terms. Users can search or browse the 70 different terms.

Launched in 2013, the original data thesaurus has undergone updates and transformations. As the world of data evolves, so too does the thesaurus. In fact, over the past year, a group of dedicated librarians from across the country have come together to serve on the NNLM Data Thesaurus Advisory Group. Members of the Advisory Group are working on evaluating and updating the current thesaurus with new resources, terms, and definitions. As you explore the thesaurus, please share your feedback! Do you see missing terms? Broken links? General feedback? We’re open to hearing it all!

We hope the Data Thesaurus proves to be a useful resource for you and your stakeholders!
