Currently, information architects create meta- data category hierarchies manually. We present a nearly-automated approach for deriving such hierarchies, by converting the lexical hierarchy WordNet into a format that reflects the contents of a target information collection. We use the term “nearly-automated” because an informa- tion architect should have to make only small adjustments to produce an acceptable metadata structure. We contrast the results with an algo- rithm that uses lexical co-occurrence statistics.
