How AutoSuggest works

The Ei Thesaurus is an important and unique feature to Engineering Village because it provides the taxonomy and classifications used for categorizing over 1 million engineering records each year. Engineering researchers rely on these categorizations, and on the Ei Thesaurus itself, when searching for articles, papers, and conferences that are directly relevant to their research.
