Taxonomy

Managing information through classification

Without proper taxonomy, access to the increasingly diverse range of content and information assets is limited. LibSource taxonomy specialists are experienced at:

  • Developing authority files and metadata strategies.
  • Assessing systems, people and processes.
  • Determining cost benefits and other impacts.

As a controlled vocabulary, taxonomy establishes a usable structure to manage and find digital information. That’s why we say Taxonomy First.
