Joseph A Busch, Barbara Kwasnik, Kathryn La Barre, Ron Daniel Jr, Ann Rockley
ASIS&T Annual Meeting - 2006 (ASIS&T 2006)
Austin, Texas, November 3-9, 2006
This session is about everyday classification—how information is categorized for use and re-use in commercial, government, and other organizations. Three experts who have actively been working as researchers and consultants on projects at large organizations will discuss three types of categorization that are commonly implemented — website taxonomies, location terminologies, and content types.
Taxonomies are used to organize website content so that it can be more easily accessed.
Location terminologies are lists of geographic locations such as geopolitical entities, areas of operation, study, competition, or market opportunity.
Content types are models of organizational content used to create templates or forms using markup languages.
