Yes, I’m Actually Going to Show You How to Implement Taxonomies
This blog has been up and running since July of 2008, and during that time I’ve worked to raise awareness of the taxonomy issue. Although I still intend to discuss some of the concepts and theories behind the use and usefullness of taxonomies, it is time to move the blog in a new direction. So, I’m still going to tell the odd joke and write the odd anecdote, but the focus of the blog is now going to turn toward practical implementation.
I’m going to begin exploring practical taxonomy application. My efforts will include, but not be limited to:
- Evaluating taxonomy tools provided by various vendors in the world right now. What do these tools actually do? Are they useful? What is the scope of their taxonomy service and application?
- Evaluating vendors of “canned” taxonomy lists and files.
- Providing insight into the benchmarks and standards that guide taxonomy providers.
- Listing potenitial taxonomy consulting and contracting firms (in case you need to hire a small army of librarians to come in and help you develop a unique taxonomy)
- Discussion of methods for integrating taxonomy management into your governance planning.
- Tips on building taxonomy and governance management into your project planning processes.
- Project initiation methods for taxonomy-dependent projects.
