The Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education

"The Carnegie Classification™ has been the leading framework for recognizing and describing institutional diversity in U.S. higher education for the past four decades. Starting in 1970, the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education developed a classification of colleges and universities to support its program of research and policy analysis. Derived from empirical data on colleges and universities, the Carnegie Classification was originally published in 1973, and subsequently updated in 1976, 1987, 1994, 2000, 2005, and 2010 to reflect changes among colleges and universities.

Transporter Classification System

"The TC-DB website details a comprehensive classification system for membrane transport proteins known as the Transport Classification (TC) system. The TC system is analogous to the Enzyme Commission (EC) system for classification of enzymes, except that it incorporates both functional and phylogenetic information. Descriptions, TC numbers, and examples of over 600 families of transport proteins are provided.

Alexandria Digital Library Feature Type Thesaurus

"The Feature Type Thesaurus contains a hierarchical scheme of terms for typing gazetteer entries; that is, for typing named geographic places. It is intended for general use for many types of gazetteers and as a shared vocabulary for interoperability among gazetteers. It has been designed to be used with the Alexandria Digital Library (ADL) Gazetteer."

Classification of the Recent Crustacea

"This volume is an attempt to provide the reader, whether a seasoned systematist or a beginning student, with a glimpse into the enormous variety of extant crustaceans. The sheer number of categories that humans have constructed to contain and order this group is some indication of the incredible amount of morphological diversity they exhibit. But this is only a small part of the overall picture.

USC Shoah Foundation Institute Thesaurus

"Containing thousands of genocide‐related concepts and experiences, the USC Shoah Foundation Institute Thesaurus is one of the first of its kind. It lists the indexing terms used to describe the Institute's video testimonies and arranges them hierarchically under broad headings. These terms have been assigned directly to digital time codes within testimonies where the specific topics are discussed, in much the same way that book index entries specify the page numbers where topics are covered.

NIFSTD Ontology

"The NIFSTD ontology is composed of a collection of OWL modules covering distinct domains of bio-medical reality. We are using a semantic wiki to expose the content of the NIFSTD vocabularies to the community for comment and development. We are experimenting with Wiki's abilities for collaborative editing and commenting on the NIFSTD. Each class in NIFSTD has been turned into a Wiki page, using technologies developed as part of the Semantic Media Wiki project."
