Join us to learn more about taxonomy consulting with Heather Hedden, Senior Vocabulary Editor at Gale, former taxonomy consultant, and author of The Accidental Taxonomist.

Taxonomy consulting, a specialty area within information and knowledge management, is a growing area information consultants may want to consider. Companies, nonprofits, and government agencies have an increasing number of documents and content items that require better organization for management and findability, and taxonomies provide a systematic way to do so. Taxonomies need to be customized for each organization’s contents, users, and needs. As short-term projects, designing and creating taxonomies can prove profitable for information consultants.

Following an introduction to the types and uses of taxonomies, this webinar covers taxonomy consulting clients, project types, scoping and proposals, phases and components, deliverables, and administrative matters, and concludes with a look at taxonomy and related skills.
