The variety and volume of information can be overwhelming. Because of that, it is becoming increasingly difficult to figure out where to find the information we want and need. This interesting topic came from eContent in their article, “Getting Taxonomies and Metadata Right.”

Between cloud systems like DropBox and your email folders (and hopefully you only have one email account), findability can be a challenge. Metadata and taxonomies are here to help. They can boost findability and make your content stand out and be found.

Taxonomies and other controlled vocabularies help ensure that machine-assisted or fully automated indexing is comprehensive, regardless of what you are indexing. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies to make their information findable.
