Types of Thesauri 

Based on the nature of terminology control, there are mainly two types of thesauri: 

a) controlled thesauri which allow only one term (preferred term) to denote a concept for the purpose of indexing and searching; and 

b)  free language thesauri, which allow use of all terms to denote a  concept to be used for indexing and searching. 

The controlled thesauri can be maintained manually  but free language thesauri require machine maintenance and retrieval.
