Building a controlled vocabulary

June 5, 2008
  1. gather content
  2. gather terms from as many sources as possible
  3. define preferred terms
  4. link synonyms and near synonyms
  5. group preferred terms by subject
  6. identify broader and narrower terms
  7. perform associative linking
  8. document your choices and the rationale behind them
