It is difficult to find a list of taxonomy management software that is both comprehensive and up to date, yet not overwhelmed with related products and services. For a long time, perhaps the most comprehensive directory of taxonomy software was that of the British consultant Leonard Will, who has since retired. Considering the valuable and respected content, we at Access Innovations recognize our good fortune and huge responsibility of now hosting and maintaining the Willpower thesaurus software directory. The history of how this came to be can found in The Accidental Taxonomist blog post titled, “Taxonomy Software Directories.”

The core of TaxoBank‘s directory “Software for building and editing thesauri” at present is still essentially the same as the Willpower site, with some additions and changes here and there.
