Theoretical perspectives in Knowledge Organization is the second track of the Knowledge Organization Education series of virtual classes. It consists of a selection of prominent and widely discussed topics in our field. Eminent international experts, book authors and university lecturers will provide overviews, offer their insights and talk about research to date and state of the art in knowledge organization research and application. Read more about speakers.

The programme includes more advanced topics presented in the way they are discussed in the contemporary research literature, taught in information science programmes or applied in the practice of knowledge organization. The classes do not follow any particular order and can be taken independently of each other.

Classes should be of interest to:

  • information science educators, students and researchers interested in knowledge organization topics;
  • students and researchers of any discipline where coherent organisation of knowledge plays a significant role (computing/IR, web design, Information Architecture, research methods, etc.);
  • practitioners interested in broader contexts, background research and the theory underpinning KO standards, tools and solutions.
