Nederlandse Thesaurus van Auteursnamen

"De Nederlandse Thesaurus van Auteursnamen (NTA) ook wel Persoonsnamenthesaurus genoemd, is onderdeel van het Gemeenschappelijk Geautomatiseerd Catalogiseersysteem (GGC) dat beheerd wordt door OCLC.

Dit is de zogenaamde collocatiefunctie van de catalogus. Om deze functie te realiseren worden naams- en andere persoonsgegevens van auteurs opgeslagen, zodat onderscheid gemaakt kan worden tussen auteurs met dezelfde naam.

Each element is prefixed to the respective class number which is useful in locating a document in the library. To provide classification numbers certain devices like NDA, CD, and LDD are provided.

"PIM is an alphabetic word system (as opposed to a numerical hierarchical system such as SISO) that consists of two levels: categories (" subject areas ") and keywords below.
 There are 27 fixed categories (visible by icons). These subject areas are grouped into ten clusters (colors) of related subject areas. The clusters can be directional for the visitor and for the collection of collections in the library. (For example, the categories "Hobbies" and "Sports and Games" are both orange; Libraries can choose to draw them in close proximity).
