With the intention of conserving a sense of identity in the different Spanish speaking countries while trying not to lose the common disciplinary terminology, a Latin American library science thesaurus and another one elaborated in Spain, are compared. The aim is to extract terminological similarities and differences imposed by the sociocultural and scientific environments in which those thesauri have developed, on the one part, and to define the information they should provide, on the other, in order to establish recommendations for the presentation of the thesaurus. Terminological analysis in a given discipline and language contribute to the understanding not only of the linguistic units they represent and that serve as vehicles for specialized knowledge, but also to recognize disciplinary differences or structures of schools of thought expressed in the linguistic structure which will give form to a thesaurus.
