BUILDING AND DEPLOYING A CORPORATE TAXONOMY, 5th July
A Corporate Taxonomy is the backbone of an organization’s information 
architecture. Whether the focus is on records management, document 
management or knowledge management, a Corporate Taxonomy is key to effective 
storage and retrieval. A Corporate Taxonomy is different from a subject 
taxonomy in that it is a taxonomy of business activities. Corporate 
Taxonomies are therefore specific to an organisation and have to be 
custom-built. This interactive workshop uses a blend of presentation, 
discussion and practical exercises to explain the purposes of a Corporate 
Taxonomy and to introduce delegates to technologies, techniques and tools 
for building and deploying them.
Course Director: Bob Bater
Course fee: £280 plus VAT (£329) Aslib corporate members / £350 plus VAT

and role of Statutory Instruments as well as where to find them will be 
covered. UK case law will focus on the structure of the courts and the 
progress of a case, how they are reported and how to locate unreported 
judgments, the difference between a transcript, a law report and unreported

EU INFORMATION, 9th July
For 2007 ASLIB's European Union information course has been substantially 
revised to reflect the primary focus on accessing information about the 
institutions and activities of the EU via the web. European Union 
information is an intensive one day course that will introduce you to the 
European Union - its institutions, legislative acts and how policy is made - 
and how to find out about its activities. There will also be an examination 
of the practical information implications of 'better regulation', and the 
ways that EU law is transposed and implemented in the UK.  Reflecting the 
central role of the internet as a medium for finding about the EU the course 
will highlight the key official and other websites for EU information: this 
will include legislation and other policy-making information, keeping 
up-to-date, policy information, contact information and bibliographical 
sources. There will be some hands-on time to allow you to examine the sites 
demonstrated. The latest developments in this fast-moving area will always 
be highlighted. Relevant print sources will also be mentioned, when 
appropriate.

FINDING DIGITAL INFORMATION: SOURCES AND SEARCHING, 11th July
There has never been such a great amount of publicly available information, 
nor such a variety of tools and systems for finding it. But this wealth of 
information sources and searching options can be confusing, and many people 
rely on just a few familiar sources. This course is designed for those who 
have to carry out searches - reference or research - of varied kinds, and 
who need an overview of the kinds of sources available, the kinds of systems 
which give access to them, and the most effective ways of finding the right 
information quickly.  The course covers different kinds of queries 
(reference and research, open and closed ..), and the way these are matched 
to sources and search techniques. It deals with varying kinds of resources: 
by level (primary, secondary…), by content (full-text, bibliographic, 
factual …), and by environment (web pages, structured online databases …). 
It compares the main search systems and interfaces (web search engines, 
metasearch engines, online databases …), illustrates some effective search 
tactics, and shows how these can be combined into a strategic approach for 
finding the right information. Finally, it shows how novice searchers can 
gain expertise in the systems which are most useful to them, and how to keep 
up with new developments.
Please note: this course aims to give an overview, and does not deal with 
any one search system, or any one type of information resource, in depth. It 
is intended for those with limited experience in searching, and is not a 
'masterclass'.
Course Director: Dr David Bawden
Course fee: £260 plus VAT (£305.50) Aslib corporate members / £325 plus VAT

TEN STEP MARKETING TOOLKIT, 12th July
This focused one-day course gives delegates practice in the core aspects of 
marketing their information services internally or externally. It is a more 
focused and practical version of an earlier 2-3 day course. During the day 
attendees will work through 10 practical tools that will help them create 
value for their customers through applying effective marketing techniques 
such as needs identification, market segmentation, product planning and 
promotion. Delegates will have the opportunity to apply these techniques by 
working on a small marketing project related to their own work situation.

WEB 2.0: AN OVERVIEW, 13th July
Web 2.0 and social networking have become part of our personal and 
professional culture, seemingly overnight. This one day event will examine 
the story behind Web 2.0 applications, will look at what they do, and will 
consider some of the ramifications for those working in information 
management. The course is designed for those with an interest in 
understanding and using content management applications such as RSS, 
YouTube, Wikis, Flickr, Blogs and Podcasts. No prior experience is needed, 
but familiarity with using the web would be useful. All terms will be 
explained, and the course content will be delivered by presentations, 
demonstrations, discussion and hands-on time. A list of web-based follow-up 
resources will be provided. Course Director: Dr Lyn Robinson

ENQUIRY HANDLING,   17th July
Everyone has access to search engines these days, so information 
professionals need to demonstrate special expertise when it comes to finding 
the information their enquirers need. This course introduces participants to 
the full range of basic enquiry answering techniques, showing how it is 
possible to tackle any subject, even when you don't know what information 
sources may be available to help. Presented by the author of the 
best-selling Facet Publishing book Success at the Enquiry Desk, this course 
concentrates on practicalities rather than sources, but also includes 
suggestions for 25 multi-purpose information sources you can't afford to 
ignore.
