Categorization is key

“Any time we either produce or understand an utterance of any reasonable length, we are employing dozens if not hundreds of categories: categories of speech sounds, of words, of phrases and clauses, as well as conceptual categories.

Categories in the library staff wiki help us automatically organize our pages. There are special pages such as

that are automatically created when you use categories on your wiki pages. This makes it alot easier to find and re-find that important piece of information!

Tag away & have fun . . . . .
