Dear Library and Information Sciences Educator,
Access Innovations’ Data Harmony is continuing to support library and information science education by making the software available to educators worldwide. This year we are proud to announce the recent release of v3.11 that includes several new features and options for your use in the classroom and for student projects.
Data Harmony’s Thesaurus Master™ v3.11 is available for classroom use.
Through Data Harmony’s Library School Initiative, we invite you, your colleagues, and your students to use the improved software in your library and information science classes at no cost.
We know how important it is to keep up with the expanding technology offerings in information science. Your own continuing education is important! To that end, we invite you to respond to this opportunity by e-mail, mail or telephone. We also offer the opportunity for a live, online demonstration, for you or for your entire class, at your convenience.
Organization of Knowledge, Taxonomies, and Thesauri
Students and instructors for classes covering organization of knowledge, taxonomies, and thesauri will find Thesaurus Master (TM) to be just what they need. Thesaurus Master makes construction and maintenance of simple taxonomies or more elaborate thesauri easy. It is simple to use and fully compliant with ISO/BSI, ANSI/NISO (Z39.19-2005), and W3C standards. It allows an editor to construct a thesaurus from scratch, as well as to import files from external sources. TM’s user interface is intuitive and easy to navigate and offers a convenient side-by-side view of the taxonomic hierarchical thesaurus file and single term record. To serve the growing needs of library and information science professionals, Thesaurus Master now includes an innovative Notation Module. Notation maximizes the ability to customize a taxonomy for specific purposes. NavTree, a navigable taxonomy view linking directly to content, is also available.
We offer webinars on the following topics:
- Getting Started with TM
- What else can I do with a taxonomy?
- Taxonomies and Search
- Classification theory
- Multilingual taxonomies/international aspects of taxonomy
- Taxonomy in content management systems
- Disambiguation, pre-coordination vs. post-coordination, and other technical questions about terms
…among other topics. Contact us for more information.
