What is the contribution of taxonomies to information architecture? Join Heather Hedden, Data and Knowledge Engineer at Semantic Web Company, for this 1-day event at Southern New Hampshire University, Manchester, NH.
Heather will hold a workshop for “Taxonomy Creation.” Look at the description of the workshop:
Taxonomies help connect users to content, and they improve findability over keyword search alone. As such, taxonomies should be created so that they are customized to the content and to the users. How to go about this will be addressed in this interactive workshop. Content analysis and term extraction are methods to make a taxonomy match its content, and user interviews and brainstorming sessions are methods to make a taxonomy suit its users. Following an explanation of different taxonomy types and features, exercises will include analyzing a document for candidate concepts, looking at the results of a term extraction tool and of a search log report. Small breakout groups will then brainstorm a taxonomy structure and top terms to serve the identified users.
