UNESCO Thesaurus

The UNESCO Thesaurus is a controlled and structured list of terms used in subject analysis and retrieval of documents and publications in several fields. The thesaurus is divided into seven greater domains and other smaller thesauri, where terms are hierarchically organised as per the following properties:

SN - Scope Note MT - Microthesaurus UF - Used For BT - Broader Term NT - Narrower Term RT - Related Term

The UNESCO Thesaurus can be downloaded as RDF file, accessed through a SPARQL endpoint and in the website: search by domain, by alphabetical order and by hierarchical order.
