Visual Thesaurus

April 3, 2008

Try the Thinkmap Visual Thesaurus and tell me what you think.  It’s a subscription service, but you can try out a few searches for free.  You can see how words are connected and click on a little icon to hear some words spoken aloud.  I could see this being a subscription that some libraries might want to have.  Try it out!
