Abstract

The HILT ('HIgh-Level Thesaurus') project was a UK based and focused desk-study of the problems associated with cross-searching and browsing by subject in a cross-sectoral and cross-domain environment encompassing libraries, archives, museums, and electronic resource collections. It aimed to reach a community consensus on the best way of attemptingto solve interoperability problems arising out of the use of different subject terminologies by services in these areas and obtained wide support across the communities for the proposed way forward-a pilot terminologies mapping service and associated participatory process aimed at supporting and facilitating the maintenance of a consensual approach to ongoing development.
