1Ward, M. ; Saarti, J.: Reviewing, rebutting, and reimagining fiction classification.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 56(2018) no.x, S.1-13 [Published online: 19 Jan 2018].
Abstract: This article explores the topic of fiction classification. The first section attempts to define the field, discussing fiction classification, its schemes, objectivity, aboutness, and shelf classification. The second section suggests three new ideas building upon the foundation of the first: a faceted multi-warrant classification, controlled term affective dimension searching, and the design of a user-oriented recommendation-based system.

2Ward, M.L.: ¬The future of the human indexer.
In: Journal of librarianship and information science. 28(1996) no.4, S.217-225.
Abstract: Considers the principles of indexing and the intellectual skills involved in order to determine what automatic indexing systems would be required in order to supplant or complement the human indexer. Good indexing requires: considerable prior knowledge of the literature; judgement as to what to index and what depth to index; reading skills; abstracting skills; and classification skills, Illustrates these features with a detailed description of abstracting and indexing processes involved in generating entries for the mechanical engineering database POWERLINK. Briefly assesses the possibility of replacing human indexers with specialist indexing software, with particular reference to the Object Analyzer from the InTEXT automatic indexing system and using the criteria described for human indexers. At present, it is unlikely that the automatic indexer will replace the human indexer, but when more primary texts are available in electronic form, it may be a useful productivity tool for dealing with large quantities of low grade texts (should they be wanted in the database)
