Finding That Hard-to-Attain Work-Life Balance
by Lauree Padgett
People tend to get a lot of random emails that they send right to the trash. A few months ago, one such wayward email (or so I thought) arrived in my inbox promoting the book Your Career Advantage: Overcome Challenges to Achieve a Rewarding Work Life. However, I glanced over the press release and thought it would have potential ... so I read the book. I hope you find these takeaways as valuable as I did.

The Accidental Taxonomist, 3rd edition
The Accidental Taxonomist, 3rd edition
by Heather Hedden
Foreword by Stephanie Lemieux
The Accidental Taxonomist is the most comprehensive guide available to the art and science of building information taxonomies. Heather Hedden—a leading taxonomy expert and instructor—walks readers through the process, displaying her trademark ability to present highly technical information in straightforward, comprehensive English.

In this fully revised third edition, Hedden adds an entirely new chapter on ontologies, emphasizes the SKOS model of concepts over the traditional thesaurus model of terms, and provides new insights into taxonomy development techniques. She presents fresh survey data; new screenshots and examples; and updated information on software, career opportunities, and resources for taxonomists.
