Open Family Services Directory

"The Open Family Services subject vocabulary provides a way of categorising family services within the Open Family Services Directory (formerly DfE Family Information Directory). The 'Guidance' tab describes how the list is used and links to guidance and complementary controlled vocabulary files. The 'Formats' makes the list available in a variety of formats including its native ZThes XML format."

Family Thesaurus

"Family Thesaurus is arranged in an alphabetical sequence showing the hierarchical relationship of each main term to other terms. Non-used terms or cross-references are listed to guide users to the preferred terms. Main terms are shown in bold and non-used terms in a lighter typeface. The Thesaurus facilitates post-coordinated indexing, whereby complex subjects are represented by several different headings, rather than one single heading. Post-coordinated systems rely on the use of boolean operators - such as and, or, not - to combine the separate headings for searching.
