"The UPIANA Classification Schedule forms part of a set of three special classification schedules developed by the Cataloging and Metadata Services Section of the University of the Philippines Diliman University Library.

"Subject authority headings for Filipiniana materials.This will contain terms on: 1. Works about the Philippines, its people and culture regardless of author, imprint, and language 2. Works written by Filipinos 3. Works written in Filipino or other native Philippine languages 4. Philippine Government publications such as yearbooks, annual reports, etc. 5. Other publications containing substantial content on the Philippines."

The Licence authority table is maintained by the Publications Office of the European Union on the EU Vocabularies website."

Gemeenschappelijke Trefwoordenthesaurus

"De Gemeenschappelijk Onderwerpsontsluiting (GOO) of Gemeenschappelijke Trefwoordenthesaurus (GTR) is tot 1 januari 2012 bijgehouden en beheerd door de Koninklijke Bibliotheek t.b.v. het samenwerkingsverband Gemeenschappelijke Onderwerpsontsluiting. GOO was ontwikkeld om de onderwerpsontsluiting door wetenschappelijke bibliotheken gezamenlijk uit te voeren als onderdeel van het Gemeenschappelijk Geautomatiseerd Catalogiseersysteem (GGC) van Pica, later OCLC.


"Volgens de thesaurus Brinkmanonderwerpen worden alle collecties van de Koninklijke Bibliotheek ontsloten. (...) Het doel van de thesaurus is het uniformeren van onderwerpen zodat het mogelijk wordt om de publicaties over een onderwerp in de catalogus bij elkaar te brengen. Dit is de zogenaamde collocatiefunctie van de catalogus. Met behulp van deze gegevens kunnen ook de zoekfuncties in verschillende zoeksystemen verbeterd worden. De thesaurus bestaat naast de onderwerpstrefwoorden ook uit vormtrefwoorden en geografische trefwoorden.
