Members of the Taxonomies & Controlled Vocabularies SIG may either be freelancers, contractors, or consultants, or work as in-house developers of taxonomies, thesauri, or controlled vocabularies, such as for publishers, database vendors, online search services, or search software developers. SIG members must be members of the American Society for Indexing or its affiliated indexing societies in other countries.

Our list of members is divided into those currently offering contract services in taxonomies, thesauri, or controlled vocabularies and those who are not.
