The SLA Taxonomy Division is presenting a webinar series – Leveraging Your Taxonomy – starting today and continuing 6 sessions on the second Wednesday of each month through December.

In the inaugural launch, our very own Marjorie M.K. Hlava will introduce the myriad uses for different parts of a taxonomy with actual website examples. As a pioneer in the data management industry and co-founder of Access Innovations in 1978, Hlava has been involved with more than 200 taxonomies over the past 38 years. She will discuss how to turn a traditional thesaurus (taxonomy) into a semantic web resource, focusing on the power of content links; connecting people, places and ideas; implementing up-to-the-minute alerts for specialized interests; and tips for designing a thesaurus to inform rich sites.

To register for the first webinar today, July 13, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:00 a.m. Pacific, click here.

The sessions are free webinars as a benefit of membership in the Special Libraries Association’s Taxonomy Division. To join SLA, click here.
