“ GINCO est désormais déployé au Ministère de la culture et de la communication. Il permet de gérer près de 50 vocabulaires (thésaurus ou listes d'autorités). Certains d'entre eux ont fait l'objet d'alignements systématiques utilisant les fonctionnalités d'alignement de GINCO. Les exports SKOS sont utilisés pour exposer les vocabulaires sur une plate-forme de diffusion utilisant les technologies du web sémantique. Une communauté d'utilisateurs hors mcc est également en train de se constituer. ”
