The Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia has allowed me to include their collection's Thesaurus in the Museum Archive software package. The thesaurus contains thousands of terms and is a good basis for a controlled vocabulary. The browse list has three tabs and has the usual ability to sort by clicking on the column headers and to jump to a location in the list by typing a letter.

 

The PHM thesaurus terms tab (sorted alphabetically):

You can use a PHM term in any field by double-clicking on the term and then pasting it from the clipboard into the field (using ctrl-V).

 

On the Object form, you can select the PHM term and add it to the Object's description field by clicking on the T button (the N button gives you the same access to your Nomenclature phrase list):
