To make available a space for sharing controlled vocabularies and discussions about their use
The TaxoBank contains information about controlled vocabularies of all types and complexities. We invite you to both browse and contribute. Enjoy term lists for special purpose use, get ideas for building your own vocabulary, perhaps find one that can give you a quicker start.
The information collected about each vocabulary follows a study (TRSS) conducted by JISC, the Joint Information Systems Committee of the Higher and Further Education Funding Councils. All of the recommended fields included in the study's final report are included; some of those the study identified as Optional are not. See more about the Terminology Registry Scoping Study (TRSS) at their site. In addition, input from other information experts was elicited in planning the site.
Contact us through the Contact page, with suggestions, corrections, vocabulary descriptions, event news, or to discuss displaying your vocabulary on this site (particularly important if it was created on a college server and faces erasure at the end of the academic year), or if you have questions.
Thank you for visiting (and participating)!
