The thesaurus of persons and artists at the ‘Digitale Diathek’ is based on the Getty Union List of Artist Names® and has been supplemented with the name thesauri used by partners participating in the ‘Digitale Diathek’. The partly hierarchical thesaurus allows linkage of persons and corporate bodies.
The ‘Digitale Diathek’ thesaurus of persons and artists has been available online since June 2012. It currently includes approximately 250\'000 persons, artists and corporate bodies with various name headings in various languages (as of June 2012). It is constantly supplemented and editorially supervised in the framework of both the Getty Vocabulary Program and also the editorial programme of the ‘Digitale Diathek’.
