McCormick Conference Center E253C

Monday, July 16, 2012 12:00PM – 1:30PM

Description: Developing a sound taxonomy is a challenge in itself, but what happens when a taxonomist needs to harmonize existing or legacy vocabularies, create crosswalks or mappings between taxonomies, or address a multi-lingual audience? This session will present tips and case studies for bridging multiple vocabularies, taxonomies, and languages.
