Powerhouse Museum Object Names Thesaurus

"The thesaurus has been developed specifically for our collection. The Powerhouse collection covers a wide variety of subject areas and many different types of objects are included. There are approximately 8,600 terms. But we do not claim to have a comprehensive list of all objects and we are actively seeking contributions to broaden the appeal of the thesaurus. We have recently added a number of new terms at the request of the National Museum of Australia, and we continue to work with them in developing the thesaurus.

Les Thésaurus Réseau Accès Informatisé aux Collections des Institutions Muséales

"Les 3 thesaurus en consultation libre sur ce site sont le fruit de plusieurs années de travail. Ils ont été créés spécialement afin de répondre aux besoins spécifiques des musées membres du Réseau AICIM. Ils évoluent chaque jour grâce aux ajouts et suggestions des musées. Leurs buts sont de normaliser le vocabulaire utilisé dans les fiches d'inventaire et de faciliter la recherche des objets dans la base de données AICIM."]]>

British Museum Object Names Thesaurus

"A Collections Data Management Section (CDMS) Working Party was set up in the 1980s to analyse the terms used to record object names in the British Museum, and to incorporate them into an on-line thesaurus. Hierarchical and other standard thesaural relationships were added, as well as explanatory notes where appropriate. The thesaurus architecture is based on ISO 2788. Curatorial advice has been sought at all stages of the project, and a number of publications were consulted, which are listed in the bibliography.

British Museum Materials Thesaurus

"The decision to publish The British Museum materials thesaurus was based on the interest shown in it over the years by visiting documentation specialists, and their requests for copies. In my opinion, the thesaurus is unique, due to the great range of terms included, the inevitable consequence of documenting world-wide collections from almost any historical period, a great variety of cultures, and covering almost any type of object.

Thésaurus pour l'Indexation des Archives Locales

"Le thésaurus révisé reste un thésaurus mono-hiérarchique, c’est-à-dire qu’un descripteur donné n’est rattaché qu’à une seule branche thématique. On compense cette contrainte par des relations d’association. Par exemple, les descripteurs se rapportant aux différents modes de transport se trouvent dans une hiérarchie 'transport' dans le chapitre 3 COMMUNICATIONS, alors que les termes relatifs aux infrastructures de transport sont dans une hiérarchie 'voie de communication' dans le chapitre 6 ÉQUIPEMENT.

Vocabulario Controlado de la Biblioteca de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras (UNCUYO)

"En general se toma como guía el Tesauro de la Unesco. Cuando ha sido necesario se han modificado alguna de sus relaciones (alternativas de sinónimos y de la relación UP o USE) o se han incorporado las de otros tesauros. En el caso de términos extraídos de otros tesauros u obras de referencia, y que no han sido integrados con los del Tesauro de la Unesco, se ha anotado sólo la fuente. Los términos que aparecen unidos por el asterisco por ejemplo Historia*Argentina deben interpretarse como Historia argentina.

"The UNESCO Thesaurus is a controlled and structured list of concepts used in subject analysis and retrieval of documents and publications in the fields of education, culture, natural sciences, social and human sciences, communication and information.
