Abstract

There are many tools that can be used to create taxonomies from Excel, for those that are simple, to large scale, multi-user thesaurus systems, for those that are complex. In addition, there are many systems which are built for one purpose (for example content management) but also offer some taxonomy functionality. To steer us through the maze, Heather Heddon looks at the pros and cons of a range of approaches to taxonomy creation and management.

There are many tools that can be used to create taxonomies from Excel, for those that are simple, to large scale, multi-user thesaurus systems, for those that are complex. In addition, there are many systems which are built for one purpose (for example content management) but also offer some taxonomy functionality. To steer us through the maze, Heather Heddon looks at the pros and cons of a range of approaches to taxonomy creation and management.

What's Inside:

Taxonomies are useful tools for bringing users to desired content, but tools are also needed to create and manage taxonomies. Choice of software should depend on your platform/system architecture, number and location of users, auto-classification needs, import/export capabilities or plug-ins, and the need to integrate with other business software systems.
