KO-ED Introduction to Knowledge Organization - Language of description by Sylvie Davies

  • 22 Oct 2020
  • 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Zoom

In this virtual class, Sylvie Davies will tackle the challenges of describing the thought content of document using language, whether it is taken directly from the document or borrowed from a list of standardised/controlled vocabulary. She will cover the following items:

  • Preliminary considerations on function of language
  • Derived & assigned indexing
  • Definition of an indexing/tagging term
  • Methods for controlling vocabulary: 
    • collecting and standardising the vocabulary,
    •  displaying relationships between terms
  • Tools to support vocabulary control (glossaries, subject heading lists, classification schemes,  thesauri)

The class was delivered via Zoom and was attended by 82 participants from 18 countries. Presentation slides are available to all participants via the KO-ED forum on the ISKO UK website.
