Whether you are a Heather Hedden groupie or just a taxonomist looking to enhance your skillset, this workshop might be up your alley. Simmons Graduate School of Library and Information Science is featuring The Accidental Taxonomist herself in a workshop titled, “Taxonomies and Controlled Vocabularies“. Two five-week workshop series, one starting in January 2015 and the other in March 2015, will take you through best practices for how to create terms, relationships, and variants for different kinds of taxonomies or controlled vocabularies. You will also be introduced to different software tools.

Whether you need to create a taxonomy to organize information on a web site, classify information in a content management system, establish a controlled vocabulary for a periodical or database indexing project, or simply understand how to use them better, this workshop will get you on your way.
