The Subject in Question: Developing the UK Archival Thesaurus

We would like to announce the availability of the website for the UK
Archival Thesaurus (UKAT) project (http://www.ukat.org.uk/).

The website provides:

1. Facilities to browse and search the Thesaurus
(http://www.ukat.org.uk/thesaurus/). UKAT is being made available
as it is developed, so we would be grateful for your comments or
contributions (see below for URLs).

2. Ability to register as a contributor, and to submit terms and
relationships which you think should be included in UKAT.
Contributions are welcome from anyone with an interest in archives,
including record offices, individual archivists and archive users.

You can register as a contributor using the on-line registration form
(http://www.ukat.org.uk/contribute/register.php). Once your
registration has been confirmed, you'll be able to login to submit
terms and relationships (http://www.ukat.org.uk/contribute/secure/).
If you have a large number of terms which you'd like to contribute
(e.g. an in-house thesaurus used by your institution), please contact
UKAT ([log in to unmask]), as it may be more convenient to
submit them to us by other means.

3. Further information about the project (see
http://www.ukat.org.uk/about/).

4. A feedback form to provide us with comments about the
Thesaurus and the website (http://www.ukat.org.uk/contact/).

BACKGROUND:

The UKAT project is working to create a subject thesaurus for use
by the archive sector in the UK. The project has been supported by
a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, with additional funding and
support from the University of London Computer Centre and the
National Archives. The project will run until the end of June 2004.

The Thesaurus is being constructed from terms submitted by
archives, archive projects and users of archives. By promoting
greater consistency in the subject indexing terms which are being
used by archives and archive projects, UKAT will help to facilitate
reliable subject searching of resources in the National Archives
Network. Contributions received so far include terms from the
Access to Archives project (A2A), the Archives Hub, Archives in
London and the M25 Area (AIM25), the CASBAH project, Gateway
to Archives of Scottish Higher Education (GASHE), the Modern
Records Centre at the University of Warwick, the MUNDUS project,
the National Archives, the National Digital Archive of Datasets, and
Warwickshire County Record Office. UKAT is being constructed by
adding terms to and amending the structure of the UNESCO
Thesaurus (http://www.ulcc.ac.uk/unesco/).

Another key goal of the project is to promote the involvement in
archives of groups which have previously been under-represented
among archive users, by incorporating terminology relating to their
histories and experiences.

For further information about the project, see the UKAT website
(http://www.ukat.org.uk/). The project team can be emailed at
