ASLIB, “The Association for Information Management”, is offering a course on Thesaurus Basics. The course is available through a distance learning platform and is scheduled for October 15, 2014. This course introduces the ideas behind the thesaurus, the most sophisticated gold-standard controlled vocabulary for information organization and retrieval. It enables participants to understand what thesauri are, why and how they are used, and why they are worth the intellectual effort needed to construct and maintain them.

This is an introductory course that will be helpful for anyone who is responsible for constructing or maintaining a thesaurus, or might be considering doing so. The course is also suitable for those wanting to understand what a thesaurus is, and why it might be useful for their organization. To learn more and register, click here.

To achieve quality theasuri that enable findability, it has never been more important to approach knowledge organization based on accepted and shared standards. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies that practice ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliancy.
