Civil Rights in Mississippi Thesaurus

The Civil Rights in Mississippi Thesaurus (CRT) is a product of the Civil Rights in Mississippi Digital Archive, and will continue with the Mississippi Digital Library Program, two projects funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

Created to provide a standardized list of names and terms for use in metadata records of items related to the civil rights movement in Mississippi, the majority of terms included in the thesaurus are Library of Congress Subject Headings or Name Authority Records. Those that are not LC are standardized for local use only and noted as such. Many new terms have been submitted to the Library of Congress through NACO and SACO as a result of the Civil Rights in Mississippi Thesaurus, improving the representation of the African Americans and important civil rights figures in the national bibliographic vocabulary.
