Hi all, 

Wondering if anyone knows about or has used Thesaurus of Graphic Materials (TGM) terms in AtoM, LOC terms are available to use for free i understand, but does the same apply for TGM? I would assume so as it is still LOC? 

Thanks!

Hi Melissa,

As far as I'm aware, LoC releases all of its controlled vocabularies under open licenses. I couldn't actually find a license statement, but they do make all of TGM available for browsing, download, and even as a linked data service, which suggests they want people to use it.

Note that the default Genre terms included in AtoM come from LoC as well - they are derived from the LoC Basic Genre Terms for Cultural Heritage Materials.
