|The AFS Ethnographic Thesaurus|
The AFS Ethnographic Thesaurus is a searchable online vocabulary that can be used to improve access to information about folklore, ethnomusicology, cultural anthropology, and related fields. Supported by a generous grant from the Scholarly Communications Program of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and early planning-grant funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Folklore Society developed the Thesaurus in cooperation with the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress.
The AFS Ethnographic Thesaurus is now available as a Library of Congress Linked Data Service.
AFS thankfully recognizes the dedicated work of the AFSET Editorial Board, which made this useful tool possible.
