Overview Edit

The Australian Governments' Interactive Functions Thesaurus (AGIFT) is a three-level hierarchical thesaurus that describes the business functions carried out across Commonwealth, state and local governments in Australia. It contains 25 high-level functions, each with second and third level terms, as well as non-preferred terms and related terms. A scope note describes the range of activities covered by a preferred term and provides cross-references.

AGIFT contributes to the discovery of government information and services online by:

  • providing standard terms for government agencies to use in the "Function" element of the AGLS metadata element set
  • helping users to search government entry points when they are not sure which terms to use or which level of government has responsibility for the information or service they require
  • providing a framework for government agencies to develop a more detailed agency-based functional thesaurus for their own classification needs.
