Taxonomies have developed over the years to reach the current status of corporate taxonomies. A number of issues that triggered the prominence of taxonomies include; information overload, information literacy, organizational terminology and “destructuring” of organizations.This research contributes to the ongoing advocacy for the use of corporate taxonomies for effective knowledge organization and information retrieval in the digital community due to the explosion of various kinds of information on the internet, changes in user information seeking behaviour and needs, and the inability of search engines to precisely recall relevant information.
