Development of a collaborative framework for building a bilingual (Spanish-English) list of subject headings for access to libraries materials. The project would exploit Web technologies for data gathering and enable broad-based collaboration so that use of the database contributes added value.

This proposal describes a prototype for a new kind of digital subject heading list to overcome some limitations of the traditional reference tools, printed thesauri, and catalog-based authority files. It will encompass multiple sources and focus on collaborative development and management of data using emerging web technologies. Specifically designed to be bilingual (English/Spanish), it may also have applications for monolingual vocabulary lists.
