Liste d'Autorité Contexte Historique pour l'Indexation des Archives Locales

"La liste d'autorité 'Contexte historique' réunit des descripteurs désignant des événements ou des périodes historiques.

"The Historical Context list contains descriptors for historical events or periods. These descriptors are not by themselves indexing terms, but must be associated with one or more descriptors of the subject thesaurus, if The documentary context requires it. "
