1Rowley, J.E. ; Farrow, J.: Organizing knowledge : an introduction to managing access to information.3rd ed.
Aldershot : Gower, 2000. XIX, 404 S.
Abstract: For its third edition this standard text on knowledge organization and retrieval has been extensively revised and restructured to accommodate the increased significance of electronic information resources. With the help of many new sections on topics such as information retrieval via the Web, metadata and managing information retrieval systems, the book explains principles relating to hybrid print-based and electronic, networked environments experienced by today's users. Part I, Information Basics, explores the nature of information and knowledge and their incorporation into documents. Part II, Records, focuses specifically on electronic databases for accessing print or electronic media. Part III, Access, explores the range of tools for accessing information resources and covers interfaces, indexing and searching languages, classification, thesauri and catalogue and bibliographic access points. Finally, Part IV, Systems, describes the contexts through which knowledge can be organized and retrieved, including OPACs, the Internet, CD-ROMs, online search services and printed indexes and documents. This book is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to knowledge organization for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of information management and information systems

2Farrow, J.: Propositional analysis and macrorules for indexing.
In: Library review. 45(1996) no.1, S.6-15.
Abstract: It has often been suggested that propositional analysis (PA) can provide a consistent basis for modelling the indexing process. Describes and exemplifies the application to indexing of PA, together with the associated Kintsch / Van Dijk model of text comprehension and production. Discusses limitations of the technique
3Farrow, J.: All in the mind : concept analysis in indexing.
In: Indexer. 19(1995) no.4, S.243-247.
Abstract: The indexing process consists of the comprehension of the document to be indexed, followed by the production of a set of index terms. Differences between academic indexing and back-of-the-book indexing are discussed. Text comprehension is a branch of human information processing, and it is argued that the model of text comprehension and production debeloped by van Dijk and Kintsch can form the basis for a cognitive process model of indexing. Strategies for testing such a model are suggested

5Farrow, J.F.: ¬A cognitive process model of document indexing.
In: Journal of documentation. 47(1991) no.2, S.149-166.
Abstract: Classification, indexing and abstracting can all be regarded as summarisations of the content of a document. A model of text comprehension by indexers (including classifiers and abstractors) is presented, based on task descriptions which indicate that the comprehension of text for indexing differs from normal fluent reading in respect of: operational time constraints, which lead to text being scanned rapidly for perceptual cues to aif gist comprehension; comprehension being task oriented rather than learning oreinted, and being followed immediately by the production of an abstract, index, or classification; and the automaticity of processing text by experienced indexers working within a restricted range of text types. The evidence for the interplay of perceptual and conceptual processing of text under conditions of rapid scanning is reviewed. The allocation of mental resources to text processing is discussed, and a cognitive process model of abstracting, indexing and classification is described
