"The purpose of this project was to examine the issues involved in thesaurus construction and to undertake the creation of thesaurus of Harry Potter novels. The thesaurus covers various aspects of Harry Potter universe as depicted in four novels (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and two “textbooks” (Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) by J.K. Rowling. The thesaurus is intended as a resource for both controlling the vocabulary, and to serve as a gateway to Harry Potter world. The final product is Web based. It consists of two parts: a thesaurus and a name authority file. The thesaurus has hierarchical and alphabetical displays."
