Subjects and Keywords

Subject hierarchies and keyword tags allow you to organise your structure hierarchy of taxonomies depending on your specific requirements.


Tagging digital assets is a very flat data structure and allows for errors to creep into the content as there is no verification on spellings and trailing or leading characters which you may not wish to be in your data. However, we recognise that not all organisations can spare the resource to have a curator to maintain and organise a structure taxonomy as below.

Subject hierarchy taxonomy

This is always our recommendation for a data structure that is organised and has high data integrity. A single administrator acts as the curator and creates a structured subject hierarchy whilst the contributors and uploaders only see the available subjects available for selection in a picklist or multi value picklist when uploading new content or editing existing metadata.
