The DAAI: Design and Applied Arts Index is indexed with the ProQuest Thesaurus. Subject terms are found in the subject field and this field is part of the searchable fields table to the right. Subject terms are also commonly known as descriptors, controlled vocabulary, and sometimes classification terms.
The thesaurus allows you to find subject terms to narrow or broaden your search and is available from the Advanced and Command Line forms. If you want to run a search on a subject, but you do not know what term to use, use the thesaurus to search the controlled vocabulary. A hierarchical display is available and will give suggestions on the appropriate subject terms to add to your search.

Look ups are available for the following searchable fields:
