In order to continue preparing SLA taxonomists for more advanced implementations, we have asked a number of people to share their real-life experiences with us in an interactive presentation and discussion format. In the first section of this course, presenters each will give a 30-minute overview of their work using taxonomies. They will cover how and why their organizations decided to implement a taxonomy, their approaches to implementation, lessons learned, and the current status. After lunch, the presenters will be available for small group discussions and Q&A with participants who will move around to the speaker tables to interact directly with them. Then three technology and standards groups will present short overviews of their products. Presenters will be available for participants to speak directly with them for a more in-depth understanding of the concepts and options available from each.


$299 (SLA Members); $199 (Student/Retired SLA Members); $399 (Non-SLA Members)
