Telecommunications Object Thesaurus

"The structure is designed to accommodate additional terms. It is hierarchically structured using the 'kind of' rule, eg public telephone kiosk is a kind of telephone kiosk, but you can also find terms by a search function and an A-Z index. Importantly, this thesaurus has a wiki facility so you can add additional scope notes and non-preferred terms straightaway. Connected Earth's Telecommunciations Object Thesaurus gives a common language for telecommunciations heritage objects."

Powerhouse Museum Object Names Thesaurus

"The thesaurus has been developed specifically for our collection. The Powerhouse collection covers a wide variety of subject areas and many different types of objects are included. There are approximately 8,600 terms. But we do not claim to have a comprehensive list of all objects and we are actively seeking contributions to broaden the appeal of the thesaurus. We have recently added a number of new terms at the request of the National Museum of Australia, and we continue to work with them in developing the thesaurus.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Taxonomy

"The IEEE Taxonomy comprises the first three hierarchical 'levels' under each term-family (or branch) that is formed from the top-most terms of the IEEE Thesaurus. In this document these term-families are arranged alphabetically and denoted by boldface type. Each term family's hierarchy goes to no more than three sublevels, denoted by indents (grouping of four dots) preceding the next level terms. A term can appear in more than one hierarchical branch and can appear more than once in any particular hierarchy.
