Abstract: Issues regarding interpretation and the locus of meaning in the image sign (objectivist, constructionist or subjectivist) are clearly important in relation to reading images and are well documented in the literature (Svenonius, 1994; Shatford, 1984,1986; Layne, 1994; Enser, 1991, 1995; Rafferty Brown & Hidderley, 1996). The same issues of interpretation and reading pertain to image indexing tools which themselves are the result of choice, design and construction. Indexing becomes constrained and specific when a particular controlled vocabulary is adhered to. Indexing tools can often work better for one type of document than another. In this paper we discuss the different 'flavours' of three image retrieval tools: the Art and Architecture Thesaurus, Iconclass and the Library of Congress Thesaurus for Graphic Materials.

2Alexander, A. ; Meehleib, T.: ¬The Thesaurus for Graphic Materials : its history, use and future.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 31(2001) nos.3/4, S.189-212.
Abstract: The Library of Congress' Thesaurus for Graphic Materials (TGM) is one of the major thesauri used for indexing visual materials. Developed by the Library's Prints and Photographs Division (P&P) in the 1980s, the thesaurus has become an essential tool for numerous libraries, archives, and historical societies that catalog images, in the United States and abroad. This article will trace the history, development, and current use of TGM in P&P and other institutions, and take a look at its future, addressing subject indexing guidelines and principles along the way.
