February 17, 2011 – Gary Price has launched a new resource site sharing his knowledge of the search and information industries, called InfoDocket. One of his recent posts caught our eye, “A Glosssary of Taxonomy Terms and List of Taxonomy Materials (Books, Sites, Etc.)”

The glossary is free and the list of materials is free, and both are part of the new Taxonomy Guide (not free) from the iSchool Institute at the University of Toronto. The Taxonomy Guide is both a reference resource and a learning tool “designed to help you master the concepts, relationships and essential steps for taxonomy design and project planning.”

The Taxonomy Guide includes taxonomies in context, taxonomy basics, software tools, design, and planning. The guide is designed for knowledge workers, records managers, librarians, information architects, and other information professionals. It can be purchased for $199 US.
