The presentation will outline plans for the development of a terminology database for use by both a specialist and general audience. It will examine work carried out to date to create a classification system which both specialist and non-specialist groups can use to access the Connected Earth collections, and then look at plans to expand this to create a thesaurus of telecommunication terms which can be used both as a museum cataloguing tool and as a public search aid to access information on the collections.
