This presentation describes a solution developed at Aspen Publishers which uses Topic Maps technology for multidimensional indexing and classification of content across various products and publications.
The topic map approach combines all the indexes, tables of contents, glossaries and referenced materials from all books in the series into a single multidimensional index. Using topic map associations, the entries in one book’s index can be related to other entries, as well as to entries in the other books’ indexes, glossaries, tables of contents and so on, as well as to external referenced materials, such as IRS publications or websites. The topic map graph is used for navigation and, most importantly, content repurposing and building new and customized publications.
