Recently a great number of controlled vocabularies (e.g., thesauri) covering several domains and shared by di↵erent communities, have been published and interlinked using the Linked Data paradigm. Remarkable e↵orts have been spent from data producers to make their thesauri compliant with Linked Data requirements both for the content encoding and for the connections (aka, linkset) with others thesauri. Also in our experience in the creation of the framework of multilingual linked thesauri for

In this paper, to support our claim, we discuss the results of the quality evaluation of several linksets created in LusTRE. To this purpose, we consider two quality measures, the average linkset reachability and the average linkset importing, able to quantify the linkset-accessible information.
