Taxonomy and Information Architecture

In chapter 9 of my book, I wrote about the importance of taxonomy work being able to support the complementary disciplines of information architecture and records management. Back in March James Kelway wrote an excellent post about a project where the information architecture and the taxonomy were built collaboratively with himself (an information architect) and a taxonomist working closely together. A thumbnail of the process is neatly outlined below, go to the full post to see the detail.

James also has a more recent post detailing the taxonomy maintenance process for a B2B website using a search engine and rules-based classification of content. Worth checking out for a very operational view of how taxonomy maintenance works out.
