"Ce thésaurus bilingue (français-anglais), développé à l’Inist-CNRS, recense les concepts de la psychologie cognitive de la mémoire humaine (systèmes et processus mnésiques, effets empiriques, troubles de la mémoire, méthodes d’étude, théories et modèles), organisés sous forme de relations hiérarchiques (termes génériques et spécifiques), d’équivalence (synonymes) et d’association."

"This bilingual (French-English) thesaurus, developed at Inist-CNRS, identifies the concepts of the cognitive psychology of human memory (memory systems and processes, empirical effects, memory disorders, study methods, theories and models), organized in the form of hierarchical (generic and specific terms), equivalence (synonyms) and association relationships."

Hierarchical Taxonomy of Psychopathology

"Objectives of the Hierarchical Taxonomy of Psychopathology (HiTOP) are to advance the classification of psychopathology to maximize its usefulness for research and clinical practice. The HiTOP aims to address limitations of traditional nosologies, such as the DSM-5 and ICD-10, including arbitrary boundaries between psychopathology and normality, often unclear boundaries between disorders, frequent disorder co-occurrence, heterogeneity within disorders, and diagnostic instability.

Library of Avalon Classification System

"The Library's classification system is unique, having been devised specifically for its purpose by the Founders (who based it upon the Bliss system), and formally copyrighted in 1990. It provides far more subcategories than would the Dewey decimal classification system. It is entirely alphabetical, the first two letters being the category code, the remaining three being the first three letters of the author's surname (with precedence rules for such names as macDonald, tenEyck or duMaurier).
