Introduction I am a taxonomist and author of the book The Accidental Taxonomist (Information Today Inc., 2010, 2016). I have designed and developed taxonomies and metadata strategies for web and internal content management both as an independent consultant and as an employee in different organizations, currently Gale/Cengage Learning. I also teach online workshops in taxonomy creation. I was the founding chair of the mentoring committee of the Taxonomy Division of SLA and was the founder and past manager of the Taxonomies & Controlled Vocabularies SIG of the American Society for Indexing. Currently I am on the board of the American Society for Indexing.
