Nomenclature 3.0 is a much-expanded edition of Robert G. Chenhall's system for classifying man-made objects, originally published in 1978. The Chenhall system is the standard cataloging tool for thousands of museums and historical organizations across the United States and Canada. In this third edition, three new hierarchical levels of terms allow for more precise definitions of objects and their functions. Every classification and object term has been reviewed and revised as needed by a professional task force appointed by the American Association for State and Local History.

This newest edition has been greatly expanded and modified with over 5,000 new terms suggested by individuals who work with special collections. It provides a practical, specific framework for the description of objects by grouping terms hierarchically according to function. . . . Although it is not possible to account for every situation faced by collections, this listing covers most occurrences and would serve as an excellent starting point.
