IUPAC Compendium of Polymer Terminology and Nomenclature

"The IUPAC system of polymer nomenclature has aided the generation of unambiguous names that reflect the historical development of chemistry. However, the explosion in the circulation of information and the globalization of human activities mean that it is now necessary to have a common language for use in legal situations, patents, export-import regulations, and environmental health and safety information.

IUPAC Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry

"Chemical nomenclature is used to identify a chemical species by means of written or spoken words and enables a common language for communication amongst chemists. Nomenclature for chemical compounds additionally contains an explicit or implied relationship to the structure of the compound, in order that the reader or listener can deduce the structure from the name. This purpose requires a system of principles and rules, the application of which gives rise to a systematic nomenclature.

IUPAC Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry

"The Rules of Inorganic Nomenclature (the 'Red Book'), first published in 1958 by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), were most recently updated as Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry 1990. This new 2005 edition of the 'Red Book' clarifies and updates recommendations concerning the names and formulae of inorganic compounds and reflects major recent developments in inorganic chemistry. Moreover, it presents recommendations fully consistent with the principles of the nomenclature of organic chemistry.

IUPAC Compendium of Chemical Terminology

"The Compendium is popularly referred to as the 'Gold Book', in recognition of the contribution of the late Victor Gold, who initiated work on the first edition. It is one of the series of IUPAC 'Colour Books' on chemical nomenclature, terminology, symbols and units (see the list of source documents), and collects together terminology definitions from IUPAC recommendations already published in Pure and Applied Chemistry and in the other Colour Books.

Thesaurus Italiano Infanzia e Adolescenza

"Il Th.I.A. accoglie in un vocabolario controllato tutti i termini impiegati nella soggettazione di ogni tipo di documento acquisito dal Centro (bibliografico, giuridico, statistico e filmografico). L'impostazione tematica si ispira a una griglia di argomenti elaborata da Alfredo Carlo Moro, già presidente del Centro nazionale.
Il Thesaurus ha un approccio interdisciplinare ed è strutturato in sette ambiti tematici: Cultura, Educazione, Infanzia e Adolescenza, Istituzioni, Processi psicologici, Salute, Società e si compone di parte alfabetica e una gerarchica."

The Italian Thesaurus on Childhood and Adolescence (Th.I.A.) contains all the terms used to enter the documents acquired by the Centre (bibliographic materials, rules and regulations, statistics and films) into a subject catalogue. The chosen topics derive from a list elaborated by Alfredo Carlo Moro, former Chairperson of the National Centre.

Irish Public Service Thesaurus

"The Public Service Thesaurus (PST) has been developed as a list of descriptors, or controlled vocabulary, by which public sector resources may be indexed. It was developed to facilitate public sector compliance with the Irish Public Service Metadata Standard (IPSMS), and in so doing to enhance the capacity of public sector organisaitons to make their resources accessible and visible to their client base.
Compliance can be achieved by using appropriate terms from the vocabulary in conjunction with the mandatory DC.Subject element.


"De NBD|Biblion Trefwoordenthesaurus is een geautomatiseerd onderwerpsontsluitingssysteem ten behoeve van collecties in openbare bibliotheken, op basis van de termen die aan de bibliografische producten van NBD|Biblion worden toegekend. In deze thesaurus zijn alle door NBD|Biblion goedgekeurde ontsluitingstermen voor alle mediasoorten opgenomen. Dit heeft als voordeel dat de ontsluitingstermen eensluidend zijn. Dat wil zeggen dat gebruikers niet worden geconfronteerd met andersluidende termen voor hetzelfde begrip.

"The NBD | Biblion Trefwoordenthesaurus is an automated subject termination system for collections in public libraries, based on the terms assigned to NBD | Biblion's bibliographic products. In this thesaurus, all NBD | Biblion approved release terms for all media types are included . This has the advantage that the term of the term is consistent, that is, users are not confronted with different terms for the same understanding. By networking, libraries can consult each other's catalogs and exchange bibliographic data.

Presentatiesysteem Informatieve Media

"PIM is een alfabetisch woordsysteem (in tegenstelling tot een numeriek hiërarchisch systeem als het SISO) dat bestaat uit twee niveaus: categorieën ('onderwerpsgebieden') en daaronder trefwoorden.

"PIM is an alphabetic word system (as opposed to a numerical hierarchical system such as SISO) that consists of two levels: categories (" subject areas ") and keywords below.
 There are 27 fixed categories (visible by icons). These subject areas are grouped into ten clusters (colors) of related subject areas. The clusters can be directional for the visitor and for the collection of collections in the library. (For example, the categories "Hobbies" and "Sports and Games" are both orange; Libraries can choose to draw them in close proximity).
