Taxonomies & Facet Analysis for Beginners

TRACK 1 • Getting Started: Taxonomy Nuts & Bolts – Monday 14 November 
10:15 – 12:00

This workshop covers the fundamentals of building taxonomies in a digital environment, and the importance of understanding the different forms taxonomies can take. Learn about the different uses of taxonomies, why they are important, and how they complement navigation and search. See how taxonomy facets support multiple perspectives and pathways into the same body of content. The workshop includes the basics of facet analysis, how to identify which facets are salient, what makes a good facet array, and how to identify from test results how facets should be implemented (i.e., as primary search, as filters, as narrow-function facets).
