Accessing the ITRD Thesaurus
At the March 2010 ITRD Operational Committee, it was decided that the ITRD Thesaurus should be made more widely available to organisations. A new edition of the Thesaurus for 2010 is available. Organisations or individuals wanting to make use of the ITRD Thesaurus must however bear in mind the following information:

The cost of using the thesaurus for these purposes is 2 000 Euros. It is free for ITRD members.
One of the unique aspects of ITRD are the four official languages represented in the database; English, French, German and Spanish, and though each record is available in only one of these languages, the quadrilingual thesaurus allows all the records to be searched by using the term code which is the same whatever the language of abstract. As in previous editions, the 2010 multilingual thesaurus is produced in the four official languages of ITRD. It comprises three volumes in each of the four languages. The main volume consists of a complete numerical list with terms given in all four languages. The second volume contains arrowed diagrams, one for each subject area, the terms on each diagram corresponding to the main terms in the numerical list. The third volume, which is an alphabetical list of terms, serves as a language index to the numerical list.
