“Indexer mind” provides a great perspective for working on taxonomy expansion and keyword tagging enhancement projects for both traditional digital taxonomies and digital ontologies (like the yellow pages), as well as non-book collections of data, like images or sound files.
We’ve developed teams of experts to support the following clients on some very interesting digital information access projects:
Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations app—We provided keyword enhancement using human semantic judgment to make this award-winning app with its often metaphorical quotations more accessible than a full text search ever could have. Although we conducted the main project in 2012, we have been called upon to add more quality terms for new quotes every year since.
Nationwide Insurance—We provide ongoing keyword metatagging support for this company’s collection of images.
Earley Information Science—We’ve added our expertise to a number of taxonomy and information architecture projects over the past several years.
Yp.ca (Canadian Yellow Pages)—We put a team together to provide consistent keyword enhancement to the database of business product and service types accessible through the company’s website.
