"PhySH (Physics Subject Headings) is a physics classification scheme developed by the American Physical Society to organize journals, meetings, and other content by topic. The development of PhySH is motivated by the lack of a fully open, high quality classification scheme for physics. It is intended initially to meet the specific goals of the APS for our journal, meeting, and other content. A longer term goal is to make it available for use by the broader community.

Animal Disease Thesaurus

"The first section is an alphabetical arrangement of keyword terms. In this section the first 6 digits represent the code number, and the next 2 digits indicate the category in the hierarchical section of the Thesaurus. Digits are followed on the same line by corresponding keywords. The first word is the coded keyword term or concept, followed by a slash //, which separates the coded work from its next hierarchical level. (One, two, or three level hierarchical arrangement.)

DTNSRDC Library Subject Thesaurus

"The DTNSRDC Library Subject Thesaurus, which exists both as a printed document and as an on-line computer file, supports the indexing and retrieval functions of the library's automated storage and retrieval system. The hierarchical structure of the vocabulary permits generic retrieval. For example, a search on NAVAL VESSELS will retrieve documents that had been indexed under all naval ship types. Several 'switching' relationships provide an automatic cross-referencing capability."
