You are invited to attend a brainstorming session on the revision of the ISO 25964 standard for Controlled Vocabularies including taxonomies, thesauri, and related knowledge organization systems. This standard was first created in 1974 and has been reaffirmed several times. Much has changed in the taxonomy world since its first creation in 1993 as the British Standards Institute 8723 and the American National Information Standards Organization (NISO) Z39.19 which is part of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
Please help us understand the potential directions and suggest changes to the current standard to make it versatile and supportive of industry directions for the future.
There is no fee to attend, however, we ask that you sign up on the link below and further supporting materials will be sent to you closer to the time of the meeting. If you cannot attend but would like to contribute your thoughts and any needs you believe the current standards do not support please click here to add your thoughts. Also click here if you would like to receive the minutes of the meeting.
The meeting will be held Sunday, November 5, 2023, from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the JW Marriott, Washington, DC (the day before the start of the Taxonomy Boot Camp / KMWorld meeting held in that same hotel).
