Technologies for Subject Information Classification by Koraljka Golub

Drawing on the research of experts from the fields of computing and library science, this ground-breaking work will show you how to combine two very different approaches to classification to create more effective, user-friendly information-retrieval systems.

• Provides an interdisciplinary overview of current and potential approaches to organizing information by subject

• Covers both pure computer science and pure library science topics in easy-to-understand language accessible to audiences from both disciplines

• Reviews technological standards for representation, storage, and retrieval of varied knowledge-organization systems and their constituent elements

• Suggests a collaborative approach that will reduce duplicate efforts and make it easier to find solutions to practical problems
