The National Agriculture Library is seeking your input on their Agricultural Thesaurus and Glossary. The thesaurus and glossary were first released by the National Agricultural Library in 2002.

Primarily used for indexing and for improving retrieval of agricultural information, the thesaurus was originally prepared to meet the needs of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agricultural Research Service (ARS). Currently, the thesaurus is the indexing vocabulary for the National Agricultural Library’s bibliographic database of citations to agricultural resources, AGRICOLA.

In 2007, the National Agricultural Library and the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture collaborated to develop the Spanish version of the NAL AgriculturalThesaurus and Glossary, named Tesauro Agrícola y Glosario.

Proposals will be considered for the 2016 edition if received by October 1, 2015.
