WHEN:  Tuesday, February 10th

TIME:  6:30 pm quick dinner, 7:15 pm program

WHERE: New Przbyla Center, Catholic University of America, Washington DC

SPEAKER: Joseph Busch, 2001 ASIST President and Founder, Taxonomy

There is a lot of mumbo-jumbo like the word "taxonomy" that is being thrown
around to describe how to manage so-called unstructured content like
documents, web site pages, and old fashioned technical reports and
On the one hand we want to remember what we already know about how to
a useful core catalog record to describe a content object so it can be
again later when needed. On the other hand there are some bad habits and
obsolete ideas like inverted file indexes that we need to get beyond. This
talk is about what I have seen in dozens of applied information management
projects over the past few years, and how you can take advantage of what
already know to solve big problems like these in your own organizations.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of the presentation on taxonomies in
November, PVC is hosting a second program on the topic--focusing on
"applied" information that you can take back to your organization.

Joseph Busch is the Founder and a Principal of Taxonomy Strategies, and is
an authority in the field of information science, a Past President of the
American Society for Information Science and Technology (www.asis.org),
and an appointee to the Board of Directors of the Dublin Core Metadata
Initiative (dublincore.org). He is the author of many articles on indexing,
classification research, and information retrieval systems.
