LGCL v1.01

Information Architecture & Standards Workstrand, is pleased to release version 1.01 of the Local Government Category List (LGCL) and meta data recommendations.

This now supersedes version 1.0.

Produced within the LAWs National Project, by London Borough of Camden in conjunction with Porism Ltd, the new category list is based on the original APLAWS list. Compiled as a result of consultative workshops run across the country earlier this year and comments received about version 1.0, it now maps to both the Government Category List and the PID List in the esd-toolkit.

The LGCL will form a proposed standard for Local Government, Agencies and Communities to use as a basis for the storage, retrieval and categorisation of any form of content whether it is to be used for a web site, a Content Management system, a Customer Relationship Management system or Knowledge Management system.

Roland Mezulis of West Sussex County Council, who are the lead partner in the LAWs project, said:
“This is more than just a flat list. Made available in the esd-toolkit in this way the LGCL will truly revolutionise the way we look at categorisation and classification of content in Local Authorities”

The list is available to download in a variety of formats from the esd-toolkit web site and will be integrated within the toolkit. More information can be found on both the APLAWS and LAWs web sites. Work on the list will continue until the end of the LAWs National Project in March 2004. The IA&S team would very welcome comments from the Local Government community.

The next release is expected in the New Year and will include synonyms received to date.
