Taxonomy Design & Creation Workshop (SLA 2019)
June 15 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT$495.00
Taxonomies are becoming increasingly important and common for organizing and retrieving information. Implementations include library systems, museum and archive systems, digital asset management systems, content management systems, document management systems, records management systems, web publishing, and data analysis. Through this CE course, information professionals can go beyond a basic understanding about taxonomies and learn the practical aspects of designing and creating taxonomies and thesauri so that they can take on or manage a taxonomy development project. Standards and best practices are important, but do not cover every situation, and there are numerous occasions when different factors need to be considered in making decisions in designing and creating taxonomies. This CE course provides guidance in making those decisions.
The outline of course topics comprises:
Definitions and types
Applications, uses, and benefits
Creating and wording of terms
Synonyms, alternative labels, non-preferred terms
Sources for terms
Structural design: hierarchies and facets
Project process, management
