I was in Florence on Wednesday for a start-up meeting, which regards a multi-thesaurus management system.

The project should be the continuation of the Thesaurus Tool Code, where JRC, FAO and BGS equally contributed to the development.

The team will be larger, thanks to the introduction of BNCF as users.

Good news will follow soon, I hope.

Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Firenze

Last week I was in one of the Italian National Libraries, the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale based in Florence.
The round table – focused on the rebirth of thesauri – took place in the Tribuna Dandesca, a beautiful room in the left side of the building.

The scope of the conference was the presentation of the Vanda Broughton book, Essential Thesaurus Construction, a direct book that explain in a clear and clever way what is a thesaurus and how to build a new one.

At the conference attended different speaker: Piero Cavalieri from the Carlo Cattaneo University, Anna Lucarelli and Melissa Tiberi from BNCF, Anna Filograno from the Library of Regional Council in Puglia and Mario Guerrini from Florence University.

It was a splendid afternoon among librarians, thanks.
