thesaurus

Humanities and Social Science Electronic Thesaurus

"The thesaurus was initially based on the UNESCO Thesaurus and is continuously expanded and updated by the UK Data Archive. As new terms appear in our studies, new terms will be found in the thesaurus. HASSET is the basis for the multilingual European Language Social Science Thesaurus (ELSST) which is currently translated into nine languages and is used to aid retrieval in the CESSDA Catalog. HASSET displays the relationships between terms and so can help you broaden your search or make it more specific.

Government of Canada Core Subject Thesaurus

"The Government of Canada Core Subject Thesaurus is a bilingual thesaurus consisting of terminology which represents all the fields treated in information resources of the Government of Canada. It contains 4,801 terms in English and 4,868 in French, including 2,180 preferred terms in each language. All fields of knowledge are represented in the thesaurus, to varying degrees. Because of the great variety of subjects covered by the thesaurus, its terminology is rather general. By design, it does not include specialized terminology used in specific and limited disciplines.

General Multilingual Environmental Thesaurus

"The basic idea for the development of GEMET was to use the best of the presently available excellent multilingual thesauri, in order to save time, energy and funds. GEMET was conceived as a 'general' thesaurus, aimed to define a common general language, a core of general terminology for the environment. Specific thesauri and descriptor systems (e.g. on Nature Conservation, on Wastes, on Energy, etc.) have been excluded from the first step of development of the thesaurus and have been taken into account only for their structure and upper level terminology.

EuroVoc

"EuroVoc is a multilingual thesaurus which was originally built up specifically for processing the documentary information of the EU institutions.
It is a multi-disciplinary thesaurus covering fields which are sufficiently wide-ranging to encompass both Community and national points of view, with a certain emphasis on parliamentary activities. EuroVoc is a controlled set of vocabulary which can be used outside the EU institutions, particularly by parliaments.

European Language Social Science Thesaurus

"ELSST employs the usual range of terms and thesaural relationships: preferred terms and non-preferred terms (UFs); the hierarchical relationships (broader terms (BTs) and narrower terms (NTs)); and the associative relationship/related terms (RTs). Scope Notes (SNs) are used to define the intended meaning and usage of the preferred term within the domain of the thesaurus. Its main aim is to facilitate access to data resources across Europe, independent of domain, resource, language and vocabulary. ELSST is used to aid retrieval in the multinational CESSDA data portal."

Australian Public Affairs Information Service Thesaurus

"The APAIS thesaurus lists the subject terms used to index articles for APAIS: Australian Public Affairs Information Service, a subject guide to literature in the social sciences and humanities. The APAIS thesaurus was introduced in 1978 when APAIS became available as an online database and was first published by the National Library of Australia in 1980 to facilitate online searching. While still primarily used as an indexing tool, the APAIS thesaurus is an essential aid for efficient online searching of the APAIS and Australian Public Affairs - Full Text databases.

Archives in London and the M25 Area Thesaurus

"AIM25 uses subject terms taken from the UNESCO thesaurus, with the inclusion of terms at a more detailed level or for cross referring purposes from other thesauri where appropriate. These include, for instance, terms from Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH), Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and the Australian Human Services and Health Thesaurus (HSH).
