Classification Scheme for Illinois State Publications

"The need for a scheme/system to classify state documents has become increasingly apparent as more and more emphasis has been placed on libraries to acquire and service this important body of material. Because of the diversity in library organizational patterns, documents librarians could probably never agree on one system for classifying state documents.

Wisconsin Thesaurus

"The thesaurus was designed to describe services commonly provided by state governments in general. The participating states hope that by using this vocabulary it will be possible to develop methods making it easier to search for information across states. It is designed to be small and general in nature rather than large and specific.
This thesaurus is a suggested controlled vocabulary for use in creating metatag information for the Dublin Core Subject field (DC.Subject) for state government web pages."
