ETB Thesaurus

NOTE: the ETB Thesaurus is currently known as the LRE Thesaurus
The ETB Thesaurus was created as part of European Schoolnet’s European Treasury Browser (ETB) project. “The aim of the ETB project is to build a Web educational resource Metadata Networking infrastructure for schools in Europe, to link together existing national repositories, encourage new publication, and provide a reliable level of quality and structure. Furthermore, the project aims to add value to these systems by an interoperable layer to help teachers and students locate resources Europe-wide through a Schoolnet Information Space with rules to facilitate location of relevant resources.“
