- Sep 19, 2013View SourceDonna,Very true. People now know the word "metadata" but I wonder how deep that understanding goes? Do they know that metadata is everywhere? Does it make them more likely to pay attention to it?Cheers,MattFrom: Donna M. Fritzsche <donnamarie@...>

Certainly, people that pay close attention to the news know it.- Donna Fritzsche

Subject: [TaxoCoP] The state of information organisation - what has changed in the last 12 months (and what hasn't)?
I find myself scheduled to give a talk to a group of library degree students on information organisation that I last gave a year ago. I am reviewing what I did last year and I am tempted to throw the whole lot out. I am also conscious that a recent job change has reduced my exposure to this stuff.
So I thought I would ask this group. What's changed in the world of information management & taxonomies in the last 12 months (both for you personally and the world in general) and what hasn't?
