Info-Muse Classification System for Fine Arts and Decorative Arts museums

"Depuis 1995, le système de classification Info-Muse pour les collections de beaux-arts et d'arts décoratifs s'appuie sur l'Art & Architecture Thesaurus (AAT). Les responsables du AAT ont d'ailleurs approuvé son utilisation. Le système s'appuie sur le rigoureux travail de recherche effectué par Thérèse Labbé, alors consultante en muséologie, qui s'est acquittée de cette tâche avec succès pour le Réseau Info-Muse.

Info-Muse Classification System for Ethnology, History and Historical Archaeology Museums

"Le système de classification Info-Muse pour les musées d'ethnologie, d'histoire et d'archéologie historique est largement inspiré du système de classification des collections du Service canadien des parcs, qui lui-même s'appuie en partie sur The Revised Nomenclature for Museum Cataloging. Ce système est le fruit de la collaboration entre Parcs Canada, le Musée de la civilisation et la Société des musées québécois. La définition des termes est tirée en grande partie du document de Parcs Canada.

This system is the fruit of collaboration between Parks Canada, the Musée de la civilisation and the Société des musées québécois. The definitions of terms are drawn mainly from the Parks Canada document. The classification system makes it possible to group objects in a collection by their original function.

Thésaurus du Journal des débats

"En usage depuis 1988, le Thésaurus du Journal des débats est un outil documentaire composé de plus de 4500 descripteurs servant à l'indexation du Journal des débats à l'Assemblée nationale du Québec. Ces descripteurs couvrent le domaine très vaste de l'information politique, économique et sociale émanant des discussions et des travaux des parlementaires québécois.

"In use since 1988, the Thesaurus of the Journal des débats is a documentary tool composed of more than 4500 descriptors used to index the Journal of Debates to the National Assembly of Quebec.These descriptors cover the vast field of information Political, economic and social issues arising from the discussions and work of Quebec parliamentarians.

Ontology for Biomedical Investigations

"The Ontology for Biomedical Investigations (OBI) project is developing an integrated ontology for the description of biological and clinical investigations. This includes a set of 'universal' terms, that are applicable across various biological and technological domains, and domain-specific terms relevant only to a given domain. This ontology will support the consistent annotation of biomedical investigations, regardless of the particular field of study.

Enzyme Nomenclature

"By the late 1950's it had become evident that the nomenclature of enzymology, in the absence of any guiding authority, in a period when the number of known enzymes was increasing rapidly, was getting out of hand. The naming of enzymes by individual workers had proved far from satisfactory in practice. In many cases the same enzymes became known by several different names, while conversely the same name was sometimes given to different enzymes.

Kinetic Simulation Algorithm Ontology

"To enable the accurate and repeatable execution of a computational simulation task, it is important to identify both the algorithm used and the initial setup. These minimum information requirements are described by the MIASE guidelines. Since the details of some algorithms are not always publicly available, and many are implemented only in a limited number of simulation tools, it is crucial to identify alternative algorithms with similar characteristics that may be used to provide comparable results in an equivalent simulation experiment.

National Occupational Classification

"The National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2011 provides a standardized language for describing the work performed by Canadians in the labour market. It is used for many applications including defining and collecting statistics, managing information databases, analyzing labour market trends and extracting practical career planning information. More importantly, it gives statisticians, labour market analysts, career counsellors, employers and individual job seekers a consistent way to collect data and describe and understand the nature of work.

The International Classification of Non-profit Organizations

"Non-profit institutions in the satellite account are classified by primary area of activity according to the International Classification of Non-profit Organizations (ICNPO). It is the classification system recommended in the United Nations (UN) Handbook on Non-profit Institutions in the System of National Accounts. The ICNPO system groups organizations into 12 major activity groups, including a catch-all 'not elsewhere classified' category. These 12 major activity groups are further divided into 24 subgroups. Satellite account estimates are published at the major group level."

Virus Taxonomy

"Taxonomy lies at the uneasy interface between biology and logic. The processing of information follows somewhat different rules in these two systems and the role of taxonomy is to reconcile them as tidily as possible. To this end, the Virology Division of the International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS) charged the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) with the task of developing, refining, and maintaining a universal virus taxonomy.
