Nomenclature for Museum Cataloging

"Nomenclature for Museum Cataloging is a structured and controlled list of object terms organized in a classification system to provide a basis for indexing and cataloging collections of human-made objects. Nomenclature is used in the creation and management of object records in human history collections within museums and other organizations, and it focuses on objects relevant to North American history and culture. Nomenclature is the most extensively used museum classification and controlled vocabulary for historical and ethnological collections in North America."

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.

Outline of World Cultures

"This outline supplements the topical classification of the 'Outline of Cultural Materials' with a new outline organizing and classifying the known cultures of the world. The new system: (1) expedites the beginning of actual processing of information into the Human Relations Area Files, (2) permits excerpting of sources processed that pertain to cultures other than those for which files have been established, and (3) assures that societies selected for processing approach the ideal of a representative sample of the world's cultures.
