English abstract

The paper attempts to address the problem of interoperability due to semantic differences, in various databases. A single platform was developed to simultaneously search and retrieve data from three bibliographic databases, using the keyword mapping and linking technique. Accelerator Driven Systems, a multidisciplinary micro-subject of global importance, in nuclear energy production and nuclear waste management, was selected for the study.

Item type: Conference paper
Keywords: Accelerator driven systems; DBMS; Information management; Interoperability; Microthesaurus; Nuclear energy; Radioactive waste management.
Subjects: B. Information use and sociology of information > BA. Use and impact of information.
B. Information use and sociology of information > BG. Information dissemination and diffusion.
