Added Value Subject Fields: 

Added Value Subject Fields

Added Value Subject Fields Overview: 

Added Value Subject Fields Overview Identifiers improve your results – providing you with a more relevant set of records Inspec Headings (Thesaurus Terms) enable you to broaden your search in any ‘Inspec’ subject Classification Codes are useful for navigating your search to broad research areas or for repeated search of very specific narrow topics (e.g. for alerts) Treatment Codes refine your search by the type of research you are interested in Chemical, Numerical and Astronomical data can be searched when these are significant to your search

Inspec Thesaurus : 

Inspec Thesaurus

Inspec Thesaurus Use Example: 

Inspec Thesaurus Use Example Search Example: asynchronous motors Display several records and browse Inspec Headings: Repeat the search using Inspec Headings

Inspec Classification : 

Inspec Classification A - Physics B - Electrical & Electronics C - Computers & Control D - Information Technology for Business E - Manufacturing & Production Engineering B7230G

Classification Browsing:
