Scope notes are added to some subject headings in thesauri to make their scope, meaning, usage and history clearer. In the first edition of LISA: Online User Manual, scope notes are used for seven message types and in one case fifteen note patterns are used to express the same meaning. In the second edition notes are expressed more consistently, and are mainly used to indicate indexing errors. Other thesauri are compared briefly.
