									How to use this information

These keywords are intended to reflect the content of the images in our archive

The keywords are structured like a tree, with a main or 'root' term, each with a 'branch' and/ or
'sub-branch'

Each entry has a scope note, explaining the how we have used a term. Please note that this does
not reflect common use of a term, but our use, specific to the CIViC Archive.


An entry may have multiple synonyms, each separated by a /. This is to facilitate varied users of
the Archive - for instance, the word 'harem' is often used synonymously with 'zenana'. Both
these terms are listed as synonyms under 'Architecture', reflecting a type of building.

However, in case synonymous terms appear in an entry, the preferred term (i.e. the term that will
actually appear in our archive's database) has been underlined so that you know what keyword to
use when searching the database, or while making an online request.
