AGROVOC Webinar: VocBench 3 V7.0: The Vocabulary Development Tool, and what is new (Part 1)
This webinar was organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)as one part of the 3rd AGROVOC Editorial Community Workshop (29 to 30 June) and delivered by Armando Stellato and Andrea Turbati, University of Rome Tor Vergata on 26 June, 2020.
This webinar discusses VocBench 3 V7.0. Initially developed by FAO in the context of the NeOn project as a collaborative environment for the development of the Agrovoc thesaurus, later generalized to a SKOS development platform in the context of a collaboration with the University of Rome Tor Vergata, VocBench has, in 2017, reached its third incarnation. VocBench 3 (or simply, VB3), is the new version of VocBench, funded by the European Commission ISA² programme, and with development managed by the Publications Office of the EU, under contract 10632 (Infeurope S.A.).
In this webinar, the presenters displayed the latest version of VocBench (7.0) and introduced the new features that will be available in the forthcoming release 8.0 this July. This webinar is meant for bringing news to users who are already familiar with the system, yet can be a good occasion for newcomers being introduced to the platform for the first time.
