From the mid 1980s onwards she has focussed on the structuring and delivery of electronic information, and from the mid 1990s particularly on metadata and taxonomy. Judi has experience in all aspects of the information lifecycle from content creation, through editing, storage and findability, to dissemination and disposition. She has designed information architectures for reference works, external web sites, intranets and collaborative environments (including SharePoint), and developed and critiqued metadata frameworks, ontologies, taxonomies and business classification schemes for a wide variety of clients in government and the private and third sectors.

In 2012 she was a visiting lecturer in Information Architecture at City University, London, and since 2013 she has worked on commercial and government assignments in New Zealand building ontologies to support findability and the automatic assignment of retention and disposal schedules, as well as running regular courses in information architecture at Wellington Victoria University.
