Thema

"Thema is intended for use by all parts of the book trade: unlike other book trade subject classifications, it aims to be globally applicable. And in contrast to various library classifications that are used internationally, it is tailored for commercial use within the trade. It is a flexible standard that allows each market to retain its unique cultural voice while still presenting a unified subject hierarchy that rationalises book classification.

Facet Analytical Theory in Managing Knowledge Structure for Humanities

"FATHUM is a faceted classification designed to accommodate the humanities and was developed for the FATKS project (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/fatks). During this one year project, the following parts of the humanities vocabulary were developed: broad knowledge classification (300 concepts); generally applicable concepts (3000 concepts); religion (2200 concepts); the arts (300 terms). A contextual subject alphabetical index (chain index) contains 9300 entries.

EuroVoc is a controlled set of vocabulary which can be used outside the EU institutions, particularly by parliaments.
