You've finally got your new beautiful, standards-compliant taxonomy in your hands. What are you going to do next? This workshop will cover topics involving maintaining, implementing, and leveraging your taxonomy including vocabulary revision and upkeep, content review, semantic enrichment, places to use a taxonomy in your workflow, taxonomy-driven analytics, data visualization based on taxonomy terms, and other uses (and abuses!) of taxonomies, thesauri, and authority files. We will also cover some common pitfalls to avoid. The instructors bring their practical experience in taxonomy management and implementation to this engaging all-day workshop. The course will include presentations, discussion, and case studies, as well as hands-on activities.

Program Takeaways

  1. Taxonomies and thesauri can be used in more than one place in an information workflow

  2. Taxonomies and thesauri are never truly “finished”

  3. Taxonomies and thesauri can be viewed in many different ways to benefit the overall information organization, including creating new information products
