Top Customer Reviews

I've been teaching taxonomy/thesaurus construction for about 20 years now but mostly with an eye to indexing information resources and realia (as in museums). I decided to read this book with an eye to understanding the role of taxonomies in the "enterprise" since I have an increasing number of students who are interested in knowledge management or who have business backgrounds.

Overall, the book provides a overview of the issues in developing knowledge organization tools -- highly structured controlled vocabularies (classification schemes, taxonomies, thesauri, etc) -- for managing and providing access to an organizations information and knowledge assets. The topics are the standard ones for this area and, for the most part, are usefully discussed--there's a great deal of support and guidance for the newbie who is facing the problem of creating a controlled vocabulary to meet the needs of an organization. The basics of term relationship structure are discussed and, in discussion of vocabulary interoperability, there is a brief introduction to XML and discussion of Zthes but no mention of the simpler notion of crosswalks. There is also a brief discussion of RDF (Resource Description Framework) following an equally brief discussion of ontologies.

What bothers me most about the book are three things -- errors arising from poor proofreading or those that are simply incorrect (and thus misleading for the reader), poor examples/implementation of thesaurus standards, and a very badly constructed index. In the first case, the author's lack of basic familiarity with topics that he is using for examples creates problems.
