Resources

For AIRS members looking for additional resources and support relating to the Taxonomy, there are online communities set up on the AIRS Networker at http://airsnetworker.airs.org which offer peer-based discussion groups and the ability to create and expand searchable resource libraries. Included are two communities for resource specialists who use the Taxonomy in their work, the Taxonomy/Resource Database online community intended for use by all resource specialists, and the Canadian Taxonomy/Resource Database community which provides a venue for Canadian resource specialists to discuss issues relating specifically to Canadian databases and use of the Canadian Taxonomy.

Taxonomy Library: It is important that you familiarize yourself with the Taxonomy and develop an understanding of indexing principles before you begin work on your database. The Library provides a number of important resources, all of which are described above. Make sure you read Margaret Bruni's article on indexing (Indexing with the 211 LA County Taxonomy) and the orientation to the Taxonomy by Georgia Sales (An Orientation to Structure and Contents of the 211 LA County Taxonomy) at the very least. There are also articles on indexing using Taxonomy target terms, keeping your Taxonomy updated, using the Filters function to customize the Taxonomy, a training curriculum developed by AIRS and a couple of PowerPoint presentations on Taxonomy indexing.

Country

There are two types of licenses: a license for vendors who want to include the Taxonomy in a software product; and a license for individuals/organizations who want to use the Taxonomy to index records in their database. Licensed vendors have two options regarding customer licenses: they can ask customers to pay their licensing fees directly to 211 LA County or they can make the payment to 211 LA County on behalf of the customer. Your vendor will let you know which arrangement pertains to you.
