North American Industry Classification System

"The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) is the standard used by Federal statistical agencies in classifying business establishments for the purpose of collecting, analyzing, and publishing statistical data related to the U.S. business economy. NAICS was developed under the auspices of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and adopted in 1997 to replace the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system. It was developed jointly by the U.S.

Australian Transport Index Thesaurus

"Keywords in this Thesaurus are referred to as preferred terms. Preferred terms are used in indexing the Australian Transport Index (ATRI) and are shown in bold type. Non-preferred terms are not used for indexing and are shown in italics; their role in the Thesaurus is to lead to the preferred term. Terms in the Thesaurus are listed in a single alphabetical sequence and appear in word-by-word order, so that 'Access road' appears before 'Accessibility'. This Thesaurus is designed to assist Australian researchers to access Australian and overseas literature on land transport.

International Classification of Diseases

"The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is the standard diagnostic tool for epidemiology, health management and clinical purposes. This includes the analysis of the general health situation of population groups. It is used to monitor the incidence and prevalence of diseases and other health problems. It is used to classify diseases and other health problems recorded on many types of health and vital records including death certificates and health records.

Radiation Chemistry Data Center Thesaurus

"The indexing terms listed in the thesaurus are those found in the RCDC Bibliographic Data Base and therefore are the terms used to generate the keyword index in this volume. The keywords are arranged alphabetically. Numbers, dashes, parentheses and super- and sub-scripts are ignored in ordering the terms except when required to distinguish two terms. Thus, '1-propanol' precedes '2-propanol' (following 'propane') and 'H2O+' precedes 'H2O-' and 'H2O2+' (all three precede 'hole'). Arrangement is word by word, thus 'hole traps' precedes 'holes'.

Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations Classification

"A substance is dangerous goods when (a) it is listed by name in Schedule 1 and is in any form, state or concentration that meets the criteria in this Part for inclusion in at least one of the 9 classes of dangerous goods; or (b) it is not listed by name in Schedule 1 but meets the criteria in this Part for inclusion in at least one of the 9 classes of dangerous goods."

Medical Subject Headings

"MeSH is the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus. It consists of sets of terms naming descriptors in a hierarchical structure that permits searching at various levels of specificity. MeSH descriptors are arranged in both an alphabetic and a hierarchical structure. At the most general level of the hierarchical structure are very broad headings such as 'Anatomy' or 'Mental Disorders'. More specific headings are found at more narrow levels of the twelve-level hierarchy, such as 'Ankle' and 'Conduct Disorder'. There are 26,142 descriptors in 2011 MeSH.

NASA Thesaurus

"The Hierarchical Listing With Definitions contains all subject terms and USE cross references currently approved for use, and displays the full hierarchical structure for each term along with a definition when available. In addition, the listing has been developed to serve as an orthographic authority for upper/lowercase forms of all terms and cross references. The term-added date, displayed for all terms added after April 1988, is also given.

U.S. Government Accountability Office Thesaurus

"This fourth edition of the GAQ Thesaurus lists more than 2500 terms which are used to index GAO documents and to retrieve information from the GAO documents database. The thesaurus is divided into two parts: an alphabetical thesaurus of subject terms and a keyword out of context (KWOC) index. Used to index GAO documents and to retrieve information from the GAO documents database."

Classification of Instructional Programs

"The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in 1980, with revisions occurring in 1985, 1990, and 2000. The 2000 edition (CIP-2000) is the third revision of the taxonomy and presents an updated taxonomy of instructional program classifications and descriptions."
