A fast-moving and powerful introduction to both the theoretical and practical aspects of building a taxonomy, thesaurus or ontology.  A well-built taxonomy is part of the foundation of the information architecture underlying Websites, corporate intranets, search retrieval and access to relevant content in databases.  After the instructor defines controlled vocabularies and identifies core standards, participants will explore key concepts of taxonomy, thesaurus, indexing, classification and filtering.  Discussion topics will include the basics of a taxonomy record and fundamental term relationships.  Attendees will put concepts into practice through multiple exercises, and taxonomy, indexing, and related software tools will be demonstrated.
