In the past years, the interaction level between citizens and government has significantly risen. Due to the growing number of services provided by e-governments, the information resources in e-government systems are becoming increasingly complex and vast.As a result, structuring information, so it can easily be understood and further used, has become a vital topic. This paper gives an overview of the situation of e-government in Serbia, with a special emphasis ontwo main aspects of using the information resources:analyzing current situation and decision-making. This paper deliberates the application of a model for structuring e-government information resources using faceted taxonomy.Faceted taxonomy represents a set of taxonomies, each one describing the domain of interest from a different, preferably orthogonal, point of view. This model would facilitate the understanding of relationships between different pieces of information in the system and therefore, improve the efficiency of use of the information resources in the system. The paper clarifies the guidelines for practical implementation of the model and deals with the transition process. The work also depicts the possible benefits of applying the faceted taxonomy model to the e-government system. 

Key words: faceted taxonomy, faceted navigation, e-government, information modeling
