  • About the Author

As organizations seek to manage and exploit their information, taxonomies have become more widely understood and used in the last decade. Preparing taxonomists for the everyday realities of working with stakeholders, sponsors, and systems so that their taxonomies remain useful and relevant, this curated anthology of expert-contributed chapters and case studies covers the wide range of ways in which taxonomies are used in digital applications, including the web, enterprise systems, and libraries. Bringing together experts from a range of disciplines to provide real-world insights on how to build and implement a taxonomy in an organization, it covers everything a working taxonomist—whether they’re an in-house resource or a consultant—needs to consider, including

  • business buy-in;
  • working on a project team;
  • choosing software;
  • governance and maintenance; and
  • the wider societal dimensions of choosing
  • categories and terminology.
