Tzedopoulos Y., Mergoupi-Savaidou E.,“Terminology Loose Ends: Social Collective Entities Facet”, Thesaurus Maintenance Working Group, Αθήνα, Ακαδημία Αθηνών, 13/11/2019. (περισσότερα)
The presentation focuses on the need for rephrasing the facet “Groups and Collectivities” of the Backbone Thesaurus (BBT), renaming it as “Social Collective Entities” and dividing it in two hierarchies. The one hierarchy, called “Organisations”, will apply to organisations; and the other, called “Groups and Collectivities”, will include more informal groups of people.
The presentation deals with the definition of a specific term called “sociocultural processes” distinct from the concept of natural processes, and with its inclusion in the facet “Activities” of the Backbone Thesaurus (BBT).

The presentation explores further steps for advocating the use of the Backbone Thesaurus by producing and disseminating promotional material which will focus and explicitly explain to thesauri holders (stakeholders / organisations), with concrete examples, the benefits of connecting to the BBT.
