Starts:  Oct 5, 2020 9:00 AM (ET)
Ends:  Oct 29, 2020 5:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  Taxonomy - Open Community

Session available on demand

This Case Study session discusses taxonomies within the healthcare and medical subject areas/industries including the Berklee Music & Health Institute, American College of Physicians (AMP), and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). Participants will learn about how these resources started (with ideas and advice on how to start something similar) and will touch on how some have been updated with recent events (COVID). They will also learn from the shared challenges which include, but certainly are not limited to, cross-disciplinary considerations, different audiences for the same resource, blockers in gathering sufficient user input, system limitations, and design issues that need to be considered for both internal and external users.

Speakers:  Heather Hedden, Taxonomy Consultant, Hedden Information Management; Travis Hicks, Director of Web Operations, American Society of Clinical Oncology; Christine Karpeles, Metadata Specialist; Brandy King, Owner, Knowledge Linking; Todd Ware, Director of Production and Electronic Publishing, American College of Physicians

Moderator: Paula McCoy, Senior Manager, Content Systems & Operations, ProQuest
