The Italian Thesaurus on Childhood and Adolescence (Th.I.A.) contains all the terms used to enter the documents acquired by the Centre (bibliographic materials, rules and regulations, statistics and films) into a subject catalogue. The chosen topics derive from a list elaborated by Alfredo Carlo Moro, former Chairperson of the National Centre.
The Thesaurus has an interdisciplinary approach and it is divided into seven thematic fields: Culture, Education, Childhood and Adolescence, Institutions, Psychological processes, Health, Society. It is possible to browse for terms via an alphabetical and hierarchical index display.
