 Taxonomy
?

??Taxonomy of Youth Studies

ACYS wants to ensure that the thesaurus and resulting taxonomy that we are compiling will be useful.

Please tell us a little about what indexing/classification systems you use. ACYS does not wish to re-invent the wheel, and we'd value hearing from you. Different organisations may each be using a list of subject terms for indexing/storing information / categorising web pages on a portal / in other information harvesting work. We'd value comparing any such lists with our own.

Just fill out the form below (or fax this page to: fax: + 61 3 6226 2578 or, post to ACYS, Private Bag 64, Hobart, Tasmania 7001or phone us, call: (03) 6226 7181)
before Tuesday 12 October 2004.
