The NAA AGIFT Thesaurus is a three-level hierarchical thesaurus that describes the business functions carried out across Commonwealth, state and local governments in Australia. Its main purpose is to describe web-based resources to aid online discovery of government information and services.
Built by National Archives of Australia, the AGIFT thesaurus contains a three level taxonomy of functions as well as non-preferred terms and related terms. It uses standard thesaurus relationships of broader/narrower, use/use for, and related.
Not only was the thesaurus built using a.k.a.® software, but a.k.a.® was also used to directly publish the thesaurus online. The fully customizable templates are included as the standard a.k.a.® installation.
