Survey on the Future of Taxonomy Work

I have been analysing the knowledge, skills and experience needs of the taxonomy profession, and as part of this I am conducting a survey on the present and future of taxonomy work and the needs of taxonomy professionals.

I’ll be reporting the results at Taxonomy Bootcamp in San Jose this coming November, and participants in the survey will also get a report of the results (which will include additional research beyond the survey).

For those of you who believe that taxonomies still have a future, this might make interesting reading, and for those of you who believe a la Theresa Regli that “taxonomies are dead”, we’d like to hear from you on why!

You can take the survey at

Many thanks in advance!

I tried to do the survey but it didn’t seem to work well with my Mac OS10.5.7. It would let me do the multiple answers e.g. Part 2 Quest. 1.  Maybe you should investigate.

Hi Bill

I’m working with the same Mac OS and I just went through the survey successfully, so I’m not sure what the problem is. What browser are you using? Could you try again and see if it’s working now? I’ll delete the earlier version if you do.
