Welcome to Paper Terms: A Thesaurus for Use in Rare Book and Special Collections Cataloging
The introductory text from the print edition is available.
To view a term record, click on its first letter from the list below. The Alphabetical List contains unapproved terms and references. To determine whether a term is approved and to determine appropriate usage as described in the Scope Note the full term record must be consulted.
You may also find a term's relationships in the hierarchy by clicking "Hierarchical View" within the record, or by choosing "Hierarchical List" and browsing through the alphabet or from a list of top terms.
Thank you, Thesaurus editor.
