The ILO Taxonomy and the ILO Thesaurus show how we assign metadata to publications.  They provide respectively lists for subject tagging of web content within the ILO, and a subject terminology tool on labour and social issues.

To know more about these two valuable tools see Taxonomy and Thesaurus.
