Content Inventories and Audits: The Book
We are excited to announce that Content Audits and Inventories: A Handbook, by Content Insight co-founder Paula Land, has just been released. The book distills Paula's expertise on the topic of creating content inventories (using CAT, of course!) and using them as the foundation of a strategically-focused content audit. The book covers topics like how to plan an inventory and audit project, how to create an inventory, and how to audit for quality, performance, global issues, and much more.
