Organized information builds power. It demonstrates connections and shows the big picture, guiding us as that picture gets more complicated. Join pioneer taxonomist Katherine Bertolucci as she explores the power of taxonomy in its many permutations. Then hear a panel of practitioners describe their approaches to organized information, from veteran taxonomist Charles Simmons with his complex SRP initiative to library school student and United Nations intern, Ann Clark. Shannon Walker describes her archival contributions to the Arizona Memory Project, and Noah Richman tells about organizing SRP’s digital photos. You can continue the conversation during an additional dinner at Scottsdale’s healthy and imaginative restaurant, Nourish.
