Thesaurus project

Historically, the National Indian Law Library (NILL) has used its own subject heading list in addition to the Library of Congress Subject Headings to catalog federal Indian law and tribal law materials. Beginning in December 2002, the library staff began revising that list and modifying it into a thesaurus. The 4th edition of the Thesaurus is now available.
