Taxonomies help connect and guide users to desired content, whether through searching or browsing. As the volume and importance of content has grown, so has the role for taxonomies.

This free webinar by Heather Hedden (pictured at left) will cover the basics of how to create a new taxonomy from scratch, regardless of the system implementation. Heather is a senior vocabulary editor at Gale/Cengage, where she edits the subject thesaurus for Gale research database products and develops discipline taxonomies for Cengage educational products. She also has been providing taxonomy consulting services through her own business, Hedden Information Management, for 12 years, and is the author of The Accidental Taxonomist.

Reports from Martin White are always readable and informative. This July report deals with the complexities and risks to effective searching for people and experts in organisations. The discussion on barriers is fascinating and exposes many of the issues in encouraging people to share knowledge . The report also deals on the difficulties of finding specific experts and even a specific individual which one thinks might be simple. Do read this comprehensive analysis of all the factors to consider when organisations plan expertise data bases or assume that the HR system can do it all.


CILIP’s 2017 Conference featured two seminars relevant to K&IM – as well as the launch of the SIG.
