Retrospective Indexing - Jan. 4th Taxonomy Community Call
Retrospective Indexing - Jan. 4th Taxonomy Community CallRetrospective Indexing
The next Taxonomy Community of Practice call is on Wednesday January 4th, 2006 at 2:00 PM EDT. (This is actually the December scheduled call...) Cost is $50 per attendee. Register for the session.
This month's call looks at challenges associated with deploying a taxonomy through tagging of large numbers of legacy documents - "retrospective indexing".
The purpose of a taxonomy is to improve the ability to locate and organize information - either through navigation or search mechanisms. In order to realize this benefit, documents need to be tagged with metadata, with terms being pulled from the taxonomy.
How can you approach projects with large numbers of documents that have no metadata and have no basic organizational scheme?The Challenge of "Retrospective Indexing"Content exists in various states of organization in static web pages, on various file servers or in content and document management systems. In some cases metadata has been applied haphazardly, in some cases not at all.
There may or may not be value in some of those documents, but the cost of reviewing manually and indexing all of them is prohibitive. We need to somehow address these issues in a "value appropriate" manner.
In this session we'll hear from Nancy Linwood of Dupont and Yves Schabes of Teragram who will talk about various considerations of these types of projects including:
- How to approach the "value continuum" of content
- How to cost justify efforts
- Ownership of legacy content
- Manual, automated and hybrid approaches
- Statistical analysis versus rules based approaches
- The role of linguistic analysis
