Introduction to Knowledge Organization - Language of description - a virtual class

  • 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 will be delivered virtually via Zoom starting  at 18:30 (GMT) and will last approx. an hour allowing time for a break and questions.

Applications to attend will be closed at midday on the day of the event, and joining instructions will be sent out soon after to those attending.

* Attendance is free but registration is recommended as numbers are limited.

This event is fully booked. To be added to the waiting list, please contact vicechair@iskouk.org.
