Thema combinesĀ a single international subject code list with six qualifier lists. The subject code list is hierarchical and has top-level categories (Eg. Fiction) that are divided into sub-categories (Eg. Fiction - Crime & Mystery). A subject code can also be given more granular context using qualifiers (Eg. Geographical, Language, etc.). Qualifier lists have international codes as well as country-specific codes, which originate from and are maintained by different countries.
