Controlled vocabulary resources

I am creating a controlled vocabulary list of business terms for articles in Turf News. Any suggestions for
resources pertaining to small-business thesauri or word lists to use for potential term structures? I
realize that this is not an indexing list-serv, but with the OPAC and database experience prevalent on
this list, I figured someone could offer some useful input.

Thanks in advance!
Christine

Controlled vocabulary resources

Hi Christine,

Businesses often use the term taxonomies to refer to 
classification.  ASIS&T or the Special Libraries Association 
may have more resources on this subject. Have you tried 
those?

RE: Web4lib Digest, Vol 13, Issue 2

Hello Christine, 
You might try http://www.taxonomywarehouse.com/ which I found through Michael Middleton's Controlled
vocabulary page, http://sky.fit.qut.edu.au/~middletm/cont_voc.html It is one of three thesauri
websites recommended by Rosenfeld and Morville in Information Architecture for the World Wide Web. (The
other two have no business listings.) Barbara

RE: web site PR sections

Hi Karen,

We also use a Wordpress blog to chronicle what's new, updated, and happening at Pikes Peak Library District:

http://library.ppld.org/Blogs/ppld/

We have a committee that submits entries, as well as RSS capability.  It is pretty easy to use and free.

Sincerely,

Virginia Franklyn
Pikes Peak Library District

Hi Karen,

We use a Wordpress blog to publicize events.
http://www.lib.uaa.alaska.edu/library_news/ 

Our library director and an editor can login to the application and
enter events.  The Wordpress interface is easy to use and we have not
experienced any problems.  

Wordpress also produces an RSS feed which we can pop into our home page.

RE: RSS FEEDERS/aggregators

I use RSSReader as my primary RSS aggregator mainly because it's pretty easy to use, is free, and allows me to
subscribe to my internal (Intranet) blog.

We are going to be redesigning our library site and catalog site this year.  I'd like to have a series of
surveys on our website to see what our users think of what we have and what they'd like to see.  I was wondering
if anyone had any samples they may have used or seen - something I can use as a jumping off point.

Thank you,
