Scope eKnowledge Center (Scope) has announced that ASTM International has engaged them to provide enhanced smart content services and MARC cataloging for its content. This is not their first venture with ASTM; Scope had previously developed a domain-specific, multi-level taxonomy within ASTM’s Standards and Engineering Digital Library (SEDL).

KnowledgeSpeak brought this news to our attention in their article, “ASTM International selects Scope eKnowledge Center to provide enhanced smart content and MARC cataloging services.” Scope is known for developing facets with a taxonomic structure to enable robust cross-domain search. This project will broaden these ‘smart content’ services to include a Portuguese language version of the taxonomy, facets, and keywords to enhance the discoverability of its content by its Brazilian end users.

Building taxonomies based on solid standards can result in comprehensive search findability. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
