LCSHAC records can be identified by the LCCN prefix 'sj'."

The taxonomy is organized around 7 top-level concepts, each holding itself several sub-categories. The taxonomy has been developed by the GenPORT Consortium in consultation with several stakeholders over the entire duration of the project. Currently, the taxonomy is fixed; however, it is available as standard compliant vocuabulary.

Homosaurus

"This is an International Thesaurus of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Index Terms that is currently used by https://www.digitaltransgenderarchive.net.

This vocabulary was originally a project of the International Homo/Lesbian Informatiecentre & Archives and compiled by Jack van der Wel (with support of Ellen Greenblatt) in 2013. That offline document has been transcrabed into the Linked Data provider under development here."

A Women's Thesaurus

"The language of standard indexing and classification systems-terms used in most journals, libraries, filing systems, and databases-does not offer vocabulary consistently or sufficiently detailed and up-to-date to retrieve the wealth of resources available. Existing classifications frequently overlook emerging topics of special concern to women. As a result, important information is lumped under 'women' or is inaccessible.
