Public legal education and information working group: PLEI taxonomy project document

The Public Legal Education and Information Working Group, made up of 11 organizations in British Columbia that provide public legal education and information, aims to maximize access to and use of PLEI and identify any gaps in services. The PLEI Working Group aims to achieve these goals by developing a website and a taxonomy to describe PLEI resources. A taxonomy is a structured way of classifying a set of resources. By using a common vocabulary, the PLEI Working Group aims to improve the effectiveness of its portal website. The project team reviewed and created an inventory of classification systems and terms in use at PLEI Working Group organizations as well as taxonomies used elsewhere. They also reviewed search terms used for PLEI searches. This document describes the development of the PLEI taxonomy and describes PLEI users, the mission, objectives, and principles guiding the PLEI taxonomy. The report makes recommendations relating to the taxonomy for the development of a PLEI portal.
