Backbone Thesaurus (BBT) metathesaurus

An overarching metathesaurus for the humanities. Its aim is to define the top-level concepts (topics and hierarchies) that form a common basis for thesaurus building in an effort to satisfy the demands for objectivity and interdisciplinarity.

It was created by the Thesaurus Maintenance Working Group, VCC3, DARIAH EU and is supported by the Academy of Athens and the Cultural Informatics Center of the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (CCI-FORTH – HELLAS).
