Thésaurus-Matiére pour l'Indexation des Archives Locales

"Le thésaurus révisé reste un thésaurus mono-hiérarchique, c’est-à-dire qu’un descripteur donné n’est rattaché qu’à une seule branche thématique. On compense cette contrainte par des relations d’association. Par exemple, les descripteurs se rapportant aux différents modes de transport se trouvent dans une hiérarchie 'transport' dans le chapitre 3 COMMUNICATIONS, alors que les termes relatifs aux infrastructures de transport sont dans une hiérarchie 'voie de communication' dans le chapitre 6 ÉQUIPEMENT.

"The revised thesaurus remains a mono-hierarchical thesaurus, that is, a given descriptor is linked to only one thematic branch. Descriptors for the different modes of transport are in a transport hierarchy in Chapter 3 COMMUNICATIONS, whereas the terms relating to transport infrastructure are in a 'communication channel' hierarchy in Chapter 6 EQUIPMENT.

Vocabulario Controlado de la Biblioteca de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras (UNCUYO)

"En general se toma como guía el Tesauro de la Unesco. Cuando ha sido necesario se han modificado alguna de sus relaciones (alternativas de sinónimos y de la relación UP o USE) o se han incorporado las de otros tesauros. En el caso de términos extraídos de otros tesauros u obras de referencia, y que no han sido integrados con los del Tesauro de la Unesco, se ha anotado sólo la fuente. Los términos que aparecen unidos por el asterisco por ejemplo Historia*Argentina deben interpretarse como Historia argentina.

"In general, the Unesco Thesaurus is taken as a guide, and when it has been necessary, some of its relations (alternatives of synonyms and of the relation UP or USE) have been modified or those of other thesauri have been incorporated. Extracted from other thesauri or reference works, and which have not been integrated with those of the Unesco Thesaurus, only the source has been annotated.The terms that are joined by the asterisk for example History * Argentina must be interpreted as Argentine history.

UNESCO Thesaurus

"The UNESCO Thesaurus is a controlled and structured list of concepts used in subject analysis and retrieval of documents and publications in the fields of education, culture, natural sciences, social and human sciences, communication and information.

UK Archival Thesaurus

"UKAT is a subject thesaurus which has been created for the archive sector in the United Kingdom. It is a controlled vocabulary which archives can use when indexing their collections and catalogues. UKAT was created between June 2003 and August 2004 from subject terms contributed by individual archives, archive projects and users of archives. The backbone of UKAT is the UNESCO Thesaurus. However, while UNESCO covers a broad range of subject areas, it often lacks the depth of detailed terminology required by archives for indexing.

Thesaurus of Australian Government Subjects

"It contains a total of 3216 terms, comprising 1430 Preferred terms and 1786 Non-preferred terms (entry terms or reference points). The structure is hierarchical, using a 'tree' structure that starts with broad concepts (top terms) which are then broken down into narrower concepts. The structure is fairly flat, with 571 top terms, and a maximum of 3-4 steps in each hierarchy. Subject thesaurus terms are used to describe the subject matter of resources - they describe what resources are about.
