February 23, 2011 – DocuXplorer has hired Rachel Lurie, MLS, to head the taxonomy division of its Consulting Services unit. According to their spokesperson, this new position will now provide clients with “customized taxonomy training.”  

PR-USA brought this news to our attention in their release, ‘DocuXplorer Hires Industry-Leading Taxonomy Expert to Expand Its Consulting Services Unit.” The taxonomy division of DocuXplorer’s Consulting Services unit is new, only having been established in January of 2011. As head of this new division, Lurie will have responsibility for designing client-specific training modules. She holds a Master of Library Science degree from Rutgers University (an ALA-accredited graduate program); the Advanced Certificate in Information and Library Science (covering electronic records management, metadata/taxonomy creation, customer usability, and thesaurus design) from Pratt Institute; and a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Stern College. Rachel is also a member of AIIM International, an ERM (Electronic Records Management) Practitioner and has completed the Advanced KM Essentials program at the International Knowledge Management Institute.

Let’s hope this impressively qualified new hire can help them navigate through the field of standards compliance. To provide quality taxonomy development services, it has never been more important to approach knowledge organization based on accepted and shared standards. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies that can help you generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
