Factiva has introduced an enhanced version of its Taxonomy Warehouse, a community directory and information source for taxonomies, thesauri and classification schemes. It is said to provide enterprises, as well as academic and government organizations, the information required to categorize internal and external data collections and ensure that relevant answers to search queries are found with speed and precision, Factiva reports.

Factiva explains that enhancements to Taxonomy Warehouse include:

  • the addition of more than 100 new taxonomies, including: Alternative Medicine, American Industries, Business, Energy, Explosives and Related Items, Genetic Disorders, Health, Safety and Environmental Data and Public Health;
  • a newly designed Web site featuring easier navigation among taxonomies and classification schemes;
  • a new A-Z index for easy browsing;
  • a new search function that enables users to find vocabularies, publishers and categories using keywords of their choice;
  • up-to-date information about taxonomy references, resources, latest news and events; and
  • links to professional associations and organizations for solutions to a company's taxonomy needs.

Factiva also offers a taxonomy consultancy, Factiva Taxonomy Services, which provides organizations with advice on taxonomy development, teams of taxonomists, taxonomy management software and assistance with content integration.
