Boggs and Lewis Classification of Maps and Atlases

"To classify maps, atlases, and globes most advantageously in a collection extensively used by geographers, historians, economists, technicians or other specialists and students, it is believed that the categories to be considered, in order of importance, are: (1) Area, (2) Subject, and (3) Date, with (4) Author, frequently necessary. When these four categories are insufficient to differentiate between maps in the collection, a fifth, Title, may be used.

Peacekeeping File Classification Scheme

"The PK FCS is based on the functions and activities of peacekeeping operations. It has three main purposes: to organize records created or received in the course of peacekeeping operations; to find and access records; to support the implementation of records management policies by linking PK FCS categories to those in the Peacekeeping Operations Retention Schedule (PORS). (...) The PK FCS
is divided into 28 functional categories."

Clinician's Thesaurus

"With over 350,000 in print, the Clinician's Thesaurus is an indispensable practitioner resource and course text. It presents thousands of standard words, phrases, clinical tips, and interview questions to help practitioners conduct thorough assessments, accurately describe nearly any clinical situation, and shape clinical observations into effective reports. Finding exactly the right terminology can save hours of paperwork time and improve the quality of documentation.

BISAC Subject Headings

"The BISAC Subject Headings List, also known as the BISAC Subject Codes List, is a standard used by many companies throughout the supply chain to categorize books based on topical content. The Subject Heading applied to a book can determine where the work is shelved in a brick and mortar store or the genre(s) under which it can be searched for in an internal database."

Zoological Record Thesaurus

"The Zoological Record Thesaurus contains controlled terms used to index records. It also contains uncontrolled terms as entry points to controlled (preferred) terms. The five major hierarchies in the thesaurus are: Subject; Geographical; Palaeontological; Systematic; Taxa Notes. You can expand each hierarchy to browse for controlled terms and to see their positions in the hierarchy. You can also search the entire combined thesaurus to find the appropriate controlled term(s) for your search."

IEEE Standard for Learning Object Metadata

"This is a multi-part standard that specifies learning object metadata. This part specifies a conceptual data schema that defines the structure of a metadata instance for a learning object. For this standard, a learning object is defined as any entity - digital or non-digital - that may be used for learning, education, or training. For this standard, a metadata instance for a learning object describes relevant characteristics of the learning object to which it applies.

Philanthropy Classification System

"In 2012, in order to better meet the needs of the philanthropic sector, the Foundation Center began an extensive revision of our Philanthropy Classification System (PCS), reexamining both the terms included in the taxonomy and the overall structure. The goal was not to create yet another standard, but to work towards creating a more broadly adopted standard that more accurately reflects the work of the field and can serve as a more relevant tool for a 21st Century global philanthropy community.

United Nations Standard Products and Services Code

"The United Nations Standard Products and Services Code® (UNSPSC®) provides an open, global multi-sector standard for efficient, accurate classification of products and services. Search the code on this website to locate commodity codes that can be used by your company. The UNSPSC offers a single global classification system that can be used for: Company-wide visibility of spend analysis, Cost-effective procurement optimization, Full exploitation of electronic commerce capabilities. The UNSPSC is a hierarchical classification with five levels.

Derwent World Patents Index Classification System

"Companies often use different names for the same invention, and additional variation may be introduced when the patent application is translated into different languages. Also some keywords can appear in many different contexts within patent titles. For example the word 'valve' can be either mechanical or electrical. So a subject classification system is essential for effective patent searching.

Association for Computing Machinery Computing Classification System

"ACM's first classification system for the computing field was published in 1964. Then, in 1982, the ACM published an entirely new system. New versions based on the 1982 system followed, in 1983, 1987, 1991, and 1998. The 2012 scheme utilizes a new poly-hierarchical structure and a more in-depth approach than the 1998 version. It no longer uses the letter-and-number coding of the previous versions. The old scheme has been mapped to the new, and both the 1998 and 2012 terms are available on Citation Pages of all indexed articles in the ACM Digital Library.
