Subject headings for children's materials

"Subject cataloging, in principle, is the same in all types of libraries. Variations and adaptions are developed as these principles are applied to special collections or general collections for limited or specific patrons. This list of subject headings is intended for use wherever material for use by children from the elementary through the junior high school level is brought together in the public or school library.

Répertoire de Vedettes-Matière

"Le RVM est un thésaurus encyclopédique partiellement bilingue dont les termes s'articulent les uns aux autres selon une syntaxe particulière. (...) Le RVM, d'abord une adaptation partielle des Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) et complète des Canadian Subject Headings (CSH) de Bibliothèque et Archives Canada, est développé dans le respect des particularités de la langue française. Le RVM compte aussi des vedettes-matière dites originales c'est-à-dire sans équivalent anglais. Elles rendent compte de réalités ignorées par les listes anglaises.

"RVM has been a world leader in controlled French vocabularies for more than 70 years, serving French-language and bilingual libraries in Quebec and elsewhere in Canada. It offers 4 thesauruses with MARC 21- and SKOS-coded data."

Superintendent of Documents Classification System

"The U.S. Superintendent of Documents developed this system (also called SuDocs) for the arrangement of federal government publications. Arrangement is basically by issuing agency. The Documents Library uses this classification system. The Superintendent of Documents (SuDocs) classification system for publications generally groups together documents by issuing agency. SuDocs numbers consist of a letter, designating the particular issuing agency, followed by numbers identifying subordinate bureaus within the agencies and specific publications."

Colon Classification

"Colon classification (CC) is a system of library classification developed by S. R. Ranganathan. It was the first ever faceted (or analytico-synthetic) classification. The first edition was published in 1933. Since then six more editions have been published. It is especially used in libraries in India. Its name 'colon classification' comes from the use of colons to separate facets in class numbers. However, many other classification schemes, some of which are completely unrelated, also use colons and other punctuation in various functions.

International Classification for Standards

"The ICS (International Classification for Standards) is intended to serve as a structure for catalogues of international, regional and national standards and other normative documents, and as a basis for standing-order systems for international, regional and national standards. It may also be used for classifying standards and normative documents in databases, libraries, etc.

Atlas of Stellar Spectra

"The Atlas of Stellar Spectra and the accompanying outline have been prepared from the viewpoint of the practical stellar astronomer. Problems connected with the astrophysical interpretation of the spectral sequence are not touched on; as a consequence, emphasis is placed on ``ordinary'' stars. These are the stars most important statistically and the only ones suitable for large-scale investigations of galactic structure.

International Patent Classification

"The International Patent Classification (IPC), established by the Strasbourg Agreement 1971, provides for a hierarchical system of language independent symbols for the classification of patents and utility models according to the different areas of technology to which they pertain.
The IPC divides technology into eight sections with approximately 70,000 subdivisions. Each subdivision has a symbol consisting of Arabic numerals and letters of the Latin alphabet.

International Standard Classification of Education

"As national education systems vary in terms of structure and curricular content, it can be difficult to benchmark performance across countries over time or monitor progress towards national and international goals. In order to understand and properly interpret the inputs, processes and outcomes of education systems from a global perspective, it is vital to ensure that data are comparable. This can be done by applying the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED), the standard framework used to categorise and report cross-nationally comparable education statistics.
