Subject: [TaxoCoP] Book Announcement: Building Enterprise Taxonomies
My book "Building Enterprise Taxonomies" has just been published and is now available from Amazon.com
or your favorite bookseller. I'm discovering that the "product description" information on the Amazon listing is pretty thin so I wanted to give a bit of additional information to this group (I'm told "search inside the book" will be available in a few weeks). The book 238 pages and is intended as a primer on creating, applying and maintaining managed vocabularies.
The chapters include:
In addition to the basics of taxonomy and thesauri, I also cover ontologies and folksonomies. I believe this is the only book currently available that specifically discusses the application of XML-based technologies and standards (including XSLT, RDF, Zthes, SKOS, etc.) to managed vocabularies.
"Building Enterprise Taxonomies" (ISBN: 978-1419693625) is available from Amazon and other retailers for $39.99. I can also provide copies directly at a 20% discount to members of the TaxoCoP. If you have any interest, questions or would like to order a copy directly from me, please email me offlist (darinlstewart@ gmail.com
). I would appreciate any feedback and critique you may have. The direct link to the book on Amazon.com
