The traditional use of a Taxonomy is still valid and tremendously significant – enabling precise and complete search returns. But with the evolution of web and search technologies there are an increasing number of relevant connections that help users discover additional resources, facilitate effective collaboration, and better use the mounds of information available to them. Carefully built taxonomies and intelligent indexing provide the foundation for many of these semantic enhancements. Inspired information architects have built them into portals and web sites that engage users and provide them with new ways to connect. Publishers and others who sell content find these linkages good for business, making it easier for their visitors to identify content valuable to them, and turning them into return visitors.

The series is comprised of four sessions, spaced a week apart. They will examine ways that taxonomies are used to enhance search, involve users, and increase the value of information assets Semantic integration
