July 9, 2010 – Heather Hedden, author of The Accidental Taxonomist, recently responded to questions profiling her career in taxonomy.

Part of their regular features, Infonista.com sat down with Heather Hedden and talked about her career as a respected taxonomist. This was shared in their post “Career Profile: Heather Hedden, Taxonomist”.  Describing  her fourteen-year career in the field of taxonomies, controlled vocabularies, and thesauri, Hedden appreciated that the best part of her chosen career is that taxonomists do not have to specialize in one subject area. They are fortunate to work with all kinds of subject areas, learning about different things in different industries and with different kinds of professionals.

Hedden’s book, The Accidental Taxonomist, was recently reviewed by Margie Hlava on this site in the feature, “The Accidental Taxonomist by Heather Hedden Review”.
