Categories for the Description of Works of Art

"CDWA is a set of guidelines for the description of art, architecture, and other cultural works. CDWA also provides a framework to which existing art information systems may be mapped, upon which new systems may be developed, or upon which data may be linked in an open environment. CDWA is mapped to the Cultural Objects Name Authority (CONA) and CIDOC CRM."

Taxonomy of Horror Sub-Genres

"I’ve broken the horror genre down into 10 sub-genres and 3 additional non-sub-genre classifications. Each page includes a full breakdown of the category with descriptions for each classification. Additionally, each classification includes a list of films that exemplify that particular corner of the horror genre. This is an ongoing project, so individual pages and lists will open as I complete them."

PANTHER Classification System

"The PANTHER (Protein ANalysis THrough Evolutionary Relationships) Classification System was designed to classify proteins (and their genes) in order to facilitate high-throughput analysis. Proteins have been classified according to: Family and subfamily: families are groups of evolutionarily related proteins; subfamilies are related proteins that also have the same function. Molecular function: the function of the protein by itself or with directly interacting proteins at a biochemical level, e.g. a protein kinase.

Classification of the Recent Crustacea

"This volume is an attempt to provide the reader, whether a seasoned systematist or a beginning student, with a glimpse into the enormous variety of extant crustaceans. The sheer number of categories that humans have constructed to contain and order this group is some indication of the incredible amount of morphological diversity they exhibit. But this is only a small part of the overall picture.

USC Shoah Foundation Institute Thesaurus

"Containing thousands of genocide‐related concepts and experiences, the USC Shoah Foundation Institute Thesaurus is one of the first of its kind. It lists the indexing terms used to describe the Institute's video testimonies and arranges them hierarchically under broad headings. These terms have been assigned directly to digital time codes within testimonies where the specific topics are discussed, in much the same way that book index entries specify the page numbers where topics are covered.

Harry Potter Thesaurus

"The purpose of this project was to examine the issues involved in thesaurus construction and to undertake the creation of thesaurus of Harry Potter novels. The thesaurus covers various aspects of Harry Potter universe as depicted in four novels (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and two “textbooks” (Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) by J.K. Rowling.
