International audienceSciGator,one of the rare tools that join mapping of index vocabularies and linking of related subjects on one and the same interface, was created in December 2014 by the Library Service at University of Pavia, Italy. As a general reference KOS, SciGator adopts the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC), which is also used as a basis for linking related classes and mapping other schemes. The DDC-based browsing library interface was presented on June 28, 2017 during the Symposium of the EDUG Annual Meeting held at the National Library of France in Paris. With the present paper, we invite you to discover this innovative tool and to navigate with us in the OPAC
