The Special Libraries Association (SLA) Knowledge Management Division recently reviewed the book, The Taxobook, written by our own Marjorie M.K. Hlava. Their observations and acknowledgments on the content, quality, and focus were in line with what the author intended. “I hope these books will contribute to a better understanding of the different ways taxonomies can be implemented and why information management professionals should embrace them,” said Hlava in the book’s release.

The reviewers were also quick to point out other attributes, i.e., “While each of the three parts comprising this work ends with a glossary, the distinguishing feature of Part 1 has to be the gorgeous, not to be missed illustrations.”

The books are available through Morgan & Claypool Publishers in either online or print format.
