Thesaurus Maintenance: DARIAH Working Group Open Meeting 2021 at ... (online meeting) (2021-11-18)
The Thesaurus Maintenance Working Group focuses on the study and management of controlled vocabularies. Its focus is to propose a model that ensures the interoperability of thesauri used across scholarly communities; namely, the BackBone Thesaurus (BBT). BBT is a meta-thesaurus the scope of which ranges over various fields of the Humanities and Digital Humanities. The BBT enables cross-disciplinary resource discovery and ensures compatibility with thesauri that cover highly specific scientific domains and areas of knowledge in development. This open meeting organised by the Working Group in November 2021 reported on past and current outputs focusing on the experience of BBT users, outlining the challenges encountered in the curatorial process, designing solutions for new issues, and planning next steps.
