When I discovered this, I admit, I was excited and overwhelmed simultaneously. I love books. I love reading. My stack of “plan to reads” are quickly becoming taller than myself. But I confess, sometimes I get overwhelmed in a book store and then browsing online…oy!

Scribd is offering a different approach for browsing books online, and I can’t wait to try it out. They have combined the personal side of book recommendations with the power of technology. Combine that with over 1,800 categories meticulously indexed and, well, the possibilities are endless measured with a little order to keep the rest of us calm.

Any records management system requires a system of indexing to create findability. This online browsing site is records management. We know that indexing against a strong, standards-based taxonomy can ensure comprehensive search results. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ISO/ANSI/NISO compliant taxonomies to produce comprehensive results.
