We are a not-for-profit scientific/professional association dedicated to promoting the theory and practice of Knowledge Organization (KO). We categorise, distinguish, name and relate things in ways that are meaningful and useful, and help us learn. We deploy classification, indexing, taxonomies, data mining, semantic analysis, linked data, and other emerging technologies to reveal patterns and make sense of the knowledge landscape. KO adds intelligence and value to the representation, processing, storage and transfer of information. Read more here.
ISKO membership (any Chapter) gives you free access to ISKO UK educational events and the peer reviewed journal Knowledge Organization, and discounts on many ISKO books, seminars and conferences globally.
Our membership illustrates the breadth and variety of professions and roles where KO is a key element.
