thesaurus

INIS/ETDE Thesaurus

"It contains a total of 30 741 descriptors, of which 22 064 are valid descriptors and 8677 are forbidden terms. The INIS/ETDE Thesaurus contains the controlled terminology for indexing all information within the subject scopes of the International Nuclear Information System (INIS) and the Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDE). The terminology is intended for use in subject descriptions for input or retrieval of information in these systems. The terminology in this thesaurus has its origin in the 1969 edition of the EURATOM Thesaurus.

Nederlandse Thesaurus van Auteursnamen

"De Nederlandse Thesaurus van Auteursnamen (NTA) ook wel Persoonsnamenthesaurus genoemd, is onderdeel van het Gemeenschappelijk Geautomatiseerd Catalogiseersysteem (GGC) dat beheerd wordt door OCLC. (...) Het doel van de thesaurus is persoonsnamen te uniformeren zodat het mogelijk wordt om de publicaties van en over een auteur in de catalogus bij elkaar te brengen. Dit is de zogenaamde collocatiefunctie van de catalogus. Om deze functie te realiseren worden naams- en andere persoonsgegevens van auteurs opgeslagen, zodat onderscheid gemaakt kan worden tussen auteurs met dezelfde naam.

Thesaurus zur Inhaltserschließung

"Der Thesaurus zur Inhaltserschließung wurde im Sommersemester 2004 am Institut für Bibliothekswissenschaft an der Humboldt Universität zu Berlin von den Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern des Hauptseminars 'Terminologieproblematik beim Aufbau von Thesauri' unter der Leitung von Frau Dr. Inge Lindtner erstellt. Er ist sowohl als Webversion auf der Homepage des Instituts als auch gedruckt in der Institutsbibliothek verfügbar.

LandVoc - the Linked Land Governance Thesaurus

"The Land Portal Foundation has taken the lead in the land governance sector to develop such a standardized vocabulary: LandVoc, the Linked Land Governance Thesaurus. LandVoc is mainly derived from FAO's Agrovoc (link is external), the standard Agriculture vocabulary, but links together many other vocabularies designed and/or used by land governance stakeholders on both a global and local level. LandVoc is always a working product, constantly being reviewed and improved. It is important to emphasize that LandVoc is not meant to serve as a glossary for land governance-related issues.

AnaEE Thesaurus

"The AnaEE thesaurus aims to provide a controlled vocabulary for the semantic description of the study of continental ecosystems and their biodiversity. It has been developed within the framework of the AnaEE-France infrastructure through an iterative process combining both top down and bottom up approaches: import of concepts from other thesauri and collection of concepts used in the AnaEE data bases and/or modeling platforms."

"The International Trade Administration’s (ITA) Thesaurus of International Trade Terms is a controlled and structured list of words and phrases used to tag and index information found on the ITA’s websites and databases. The thesaurus covers all subjects related to international trade and foreign investment with particular emphasis on exporting, trade promotion, market access and enforcement and compliance.

Information Literacy Thesaurus

"This project is working with the Journal of Information Literacy (JIL) to develop a thesaurus for the field of information literacy based on a keyword list compiled by them, and then to publish it as a linked open thesaurus that adheres to the SKOS standard as recommended by the W3C. It is hoped that this will aid in the search process, helping to improve discoverability of articles published by JIL, and to allow for the possibility of the thesaurus to be utilized by other datasets.

CaLAThe

"The first version of this thesaurus (Sept. 2011) was prepared based on terms and term relationships derived from ISO/DIS Land Administration Domain Model (dated 2010-03-01) which was initiated by Peter van Oosterom and Christiaan Lemmen, as well as terms adopted from other thesauri including the AGROVOC multilingual agricultural vocabulary, the GEMET Thesaurus, INSPIRE Spatial Data Themes, and the STW Thesaurus for Economics. In version 2 (Oct. 2012), the about 110 terms of the version 1.0 was supplemented with terms, which address the dynamic or process aspect of the domain.
