The Knowledge Organization Meetup is resuming its evenings starting with an interactive session: ‘Taxonomies/Thesauri/Ontologies – what’s best for me?’.
Niké Brown, member of ISKO UK and taxonomist at Wiley and Sons, has kindly agreed to introduce the topic and moderate the discussion. Niké has over 20 years of publishing and information management experience.
We hope that participants will leave the Meetup with a better understanding of the differences between these formats of controlled vocabulary which, in turn, will give them confidence to decide which format to adopt for their respective needs. This session is designed mainly for newcomers to the world of taxonomies, but all are welcome!
The meeting will take place in room 5 on the second floor of the Canada Water Library, 21 Surrey Quays Rd, Rotherhithe, London SE16 7AR. The Library is situated directly above Canada Water tube station.
How to get there
Tube: Canada Water (Jubilee line or Overground)
Bus: Canada Water Bust stop: 1, 47, 188, 199, 225, 381, C10 and P12
Keeping with our Meetup tradition, afterwards we move on to Leadbelly's Bar & Kitchen pub directly opposite the Library for a bit of food, drink and conversation.
The event is free for ISKO members and £5 for non-members, payable at the door. As numbers are limited, we recommend that you register via the Meetup website https://www.meetup.com/Information-Architecture-London/events/268056583/
