IDQ Webinars: with Joseph Busch


Topic:

Evaluating Taxonomies for Organizing Information

Abstract:

Taxonomies are developed in communities and evolve over time. From the outset there is a need to evaluate existing schemes for organizing content and questions about whether to build or buy them. Once built out and implemented, taxonomies require ongoing revisions and periodic evaluation to keep them current and structurally consistent. Taxonomy evaluation includes the following dimensions which will be discussed in this webinar.

  • Editorial evaluation — including depth and breadth, comprehensiveness, currency, relationships, polyhierarchy (is it applied appropriately), and naming conventions.
  • Collection analysis — category usage analytics (is distribution of categories appropriate), completeness and consistency, and query log/content usage analysis.
  • Market analysis — including industry standards/leaders, user surveys, card sorting, and task based usability.

Examples will be provided from public, non-profit and commercial client projects.
