Title: [abstract] RECOMMENDED KEY WORDS FOR UNDERSEA AND HYPERBARIC MEDICAL LITERATURE.
Author: Lackey, CW; Hobbs, GW; Carden, VR; Koonts, RS; Peterson, RA; Thibodeau, PL
Abstract: BACKGROUND: In 2005, The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society relocated their collection of scientific literature to the Duke Medical Center Library and Archives with the library providing reference and document delivery services to Society members. The collection consists of government documents from around the world, reprints of articles, original manuscripts, images, books, journals, and other materials relating to diving and hyperbaric medicine. The library has established guidelines for adding the materials to its collections and has developed creative ways for making hundreds of print reports accessible through the web. Archives received collections of papers from key society leaders, as well as major figures in the field, and has created web-based finding aids providing access to these unique resources. In order to ensure better information retrieval and indexing of these resources, a new set of keywords was established for the collection. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Keyword sets are established through a process of compiling the available terms for a given topic and merging like terms until one set of all-inclusive terms has been established. These terms should allow for easier retrieval of the source material. For the field of diving and hyperbaric medicine, the initial list was complied from the indices of Bennett and Elliott’s The Physiology and Medicine of Diving 5th edition edited by Brubakk and Neuman; Deeper Into Diving 2nd edition by Lippmann and Mitchell, and Hyperbaric Medicine; and Practice 2nd edition by Kindwall, Wound Care Practice edited by Sheffield, Smith, and Fife. RESULTS: The current list of keywords is 484. The headings were selected by using the Library of Congress and MeSH subject headings. CONCLUSIONS: We are presenting our proposed keyword list for Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine. This list should be used for the indexing of new items introduced to the field and applied to older parts of the collection.
