By Philipp Conzett
What does the workshop cover?
The workshop provides an introduction to UDC system, its nature, and its application in subject indexing. The focus of the workshop is on explaining the UDC's analytico-synthetic and faceted principles, and the ways this is applied in subject indexing and knowledge organization. Practical application of UDC and guided exercises will be an important element of this workshop and participants will be asked to allocate time for completing tasks in between online sessions.
Who will benefit?
This workshop will be principally of interest to those considering, planning or are about to start using UDC for information resource indexing. It may also benefit anyone who would like to learn more about the ways analytico-synthetic classifications covering knowledge as a whole are designed and how they function in organizing information. No prior knowledge of UDC or subject indexing is assumed.
A certificate will be issued for successful completion of the workshop.
Presenter: AIDA SLAVIC
The workshop takes place remotely: online via Zoom, a closed online forum and via emails. It consists of three 90 min long sessions with a mix of theory and exercises. The sessions will not be recorded. The workshop forum will contain workshop materials and will enable online discussion, guided and supervised by the instructor. During the workshop participants will be introduced to and will have access to UDC English Online; standard and up-to date schedules of the UDC. Further participant/instructor communication will take place via email. Prior to the workshop, registrants will be asked to fill in a questionnaire indicating their familiarity with UDC, knowledge areas that they would like to be covered by the exercises and their expectations.
The online sessions are scheduled from 6.30 to 8 pm (GMT) on successive Thursdays starting from 25 November 2021.

What does the workshop cover?
This highly interactive workshop explores practical issues that arise during thesaurus construction and/or development. It offers a self-help opportunity for participants to share their experiences with others, discuss issues and seek expert guidance from the workshop leader, before developing their own solutions. Programme content will be adjusted to reflect the interests and queries submitted by the participants.
Who will benefit?
No matter how much or how little experience/qualifications you have of thesaurus work, the workshop should provide useful insights. To get maximum benefit however, it’s best if you are hoping, or planning, or have already started a practical project such as building a new thesaurus for an information retrieval situation, or are re-developing an existing one. There will be opportunities to share with other practitioners the real-life choices that emerge, use cases, challenges, victories, lessons learned etc. A certificate will be issued for successful completion of the workshop.
Presenter: STELLA DEXTRE CLARKE
Prior to acceptance for this course, participants are asked to submit a description of their current or planned thesaurus project via the application form, preferably including a list of the issues they hope to raise for discussion. Following notification of acceptance and registration, the successful applicants will be provided with some initial study materials, including an optional reading list. Queries arising from these materials will be addressed during the workshop.
The workshop sessions will take place remotely: online via Zoom, email and a closed online forum. Each of the three 90-minute sessions will comprise a mix of presentations (some from the participants as well as best practice guidance from the workshop leader), interactive dialogue, and practical exercises. Participants should set aside time between sessions to complete some exercises for discussion at the next session. To dispel any worries about confidentiality, the sessions will not be recorded and any materials shared by the participants will not be made available to third parties.
The online sessions are scheduled from 17.30 to 19:00 (GMT) on successive Thursdays in January 2022.
Places are limited to 6 participants
To apply for a place in this workshop, please fill in the FORM.
To ensure the workshop is productive we will offer places to up to 6 applicants who are most likely to benefit and who share a certain amount of common interests. Applications should be submitted before 15th November 2021. Provided at least 3 (the minimum number for a viable workshop) are received, places will be confirmed before the end of November and receipt of payment will complete the registration.
