UKAT

The UK Archival Thesaurus (http://www.ukat.org.uk/) is a subject thesaurus which has been created to support indexing and searching in the UK archive sector. UKAT should promote greater consistency in the subject indexes created by individual archive repositories, and by the projects which make up the strands of the emerging national archives network. The backbone of UKAT is the UNESCO Thesaurus (UNESCO), a high-level thesaurus with terminology covering education, science, culture, the social and human sciences, information and communication, politics, law and economics.
