IUPAC Compendium of Polymer Terminology and Nomenclature

"The IUPAC system of polymer nomenclature has aided the generation of unambiguous names that reflect the historical development of chemistry. However, the explosion in the circulation of information and the globalization of human activities mean that it is now necessary to have a common language for use in legal situations, patents, export-import regulations, and environmental health and safety information.

IUPAC Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry

"Chemical nomenclature is used to identify a chemical species by means of written or spoken words and enables a common language for communication amongst chemists. Nomenclature for chemical compounds additionally contains an explicit or implied relationship to the structure of the compound, in order that the reader or listener can deduce the structure from the name. This purpose requires a system of principles and rules, the application of which gives rise to a systematic nomenclature.

IUPAC Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry

"The Rules of Inorganic Nomenclature (the 'Red Book'), first published in 1958 by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), were most recently updated as Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry 1990. This new 2005 edition of the 'Red Book' clarifies and updates recommendations concerning the names and formulae of inorganic compounds and reflects major recent developments in inorganic chemistry. Moreover, it presents recommendations fully consistent with the principles of the nomenclature of organic chemistry.

IUPAC Compendium of Chemical Terminology

"The Compendium is popularly referred to as the 'Gold Book', in recognition of the contribution of the late Victor Gold, who initiated work on the first edition. It is one of the series of IUPAC 'Colour Books' on chemical nomenclature, terminology, symbols and units (see the list of source documents), and collects together terminology definitions from IUPAC recommendations already published in Pure and Applied Chemistry and in the other Colour Books.


" is a collaborative project to provide stable digital representations of numismatic concepts according to the principles of Linked Open Data. These take the form of http URIs that also provide access to reusable information about those concepts, along with links to other resources."


"Fartygstypslistan innehåller termer som är användbara när ett fartyg, en avbildning av ett fartyg eller föremål kopplade till ett fartyg ska registreras. Datasetet Fartygstyper är tänkt att användas tillsammans med datasetet Namngivna fartygstyper och datasetet Serietillverkade fartyg. Det maritima kulturarvet är en angelägenhet för många. Vi är därför åtta maritima museer som samarbetar kring gemensamma auktoriteter och vokabulär för att kunna beskriva det maritima kulturarvet på ett enhetligt sätt.

"The Ship Type List contains terms that are useful when registering a vessel, a map of a vessel or item attached to a vessel. The Data Type Ship Types are intended to be used with the Data Set Named Ship Types and the Data Set Series Manufactured Ships. The maritime heritage is a concern for many. We are therefore eight maritime museums that collaborate on common authorities and vocabulary in order to be able to describe the maritime heritage in a unified way.

Library of Congress Demographic Group Terms

"This vocabulary will be used to describe the creators of, and contributors to, resources, and also the intended audience of resources. It will be created and maintained by the Policy and Standards Division, and be distinct from the other vocabularies that are maintained by that division: Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH), Library of Congress Genre/Form Terms for Library and Archival Materials (LCGFT), and the Library of Congress Medium of Performance Thesaurus for Music (LCMPT).
