IDEOLOGY AND DISCOURSES ABOUT WORK, EDUCATION AND HEALTH IN THE DESCRIPTORS OF THE HEALTH SCIENCES
Abstract The present article analyzes the indexation and data retrieval tool called Descriptors in Health Sciences (Descritores em Ciências da Saúde, DeCS, in the Portuguese acronym) as an ideological-discursive object, through the perspective of the Franco-Brazilian discourse analysis. The research was performed between 2014 and 2015. In order to do so, we considered the historical conditions in which the Descriptors in Health Sciences were created, and we compared between a particular aspect of education and the meanings of some of the entries related to the field labor, education and health. Lastly, we sought to contribute to the field of library ccience with considerations about discourse and ideology in reading, selection and development of documentary languages.
