The Subject Thesaurus contains the AIATSIS Library's in-house, faceted subject headings. It reflects AIATSIS' exclusive interest in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander studies. Where possible, the choice of headings tries to reflect Indigenous perspectives.
The Language and Peoples Thesaurus contains headings for languages and peoples within Australia. The headings include the language code (eg. (N156)) and a grid reference to the 1:250,000 map grid series (eg. Mutumui language (Y63.1) (Qld SD55-09)).
The Place Thesaurus contains headings for place names within Australia, using the Indigenous place name first, wherever possible. The headings include the grid reference to the 1:250,000 map grid series (eg. Lake Hindmarsh (NW Vic SJ54-03))."
