The Special Libraries Association (SLA) Taxonomy Division’s Professional Development Series is offering a February webinar featuring a familiar taxonomist – their own Heather Hedden – senior vocabulary editor at Gale, a Cengage Company, presenting on Licensing Controlled Vocabularies.

A custom-created controlled vocabulary/taxonomy is best, but there are situations in which licensing a controlled vocabulary published by a third party may be considered. This webinar presents the situations in which to consider licensing a controlled vocabulary, the issues in licensing a controlled vocabulary, and the sources for licensing a vocabulary. What to consider if you have created a controlled vocabulary that you want to license out will also be discussed.

In addition, preliminary results from a taxonomy licensing interest survey will be shared. Both those new and experienced with taxonomies will gain insights from this webinar.

The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 12:00 to 1:00 pm EST.Best of all, this webinar is free to members of SLA. Register today!
