Title
Research in classification : a pointer towards knowledge representation
Source
Information studies. 4(1998) no.1, S.1-12
Year
1998
Abstract
Discusses the importance of classificatory language and research, and identifies major trends in classification development. Looks at ways of testing the quality of representation in classification systems, highlighting a number of basic research fronts. Notes efforts towards the development of a science of classification, beginning with those of Ranganathan. Examines the problems of keeping classification schemes up to date, and the usefulness of classification theory in knowledge organization. Also discusses categorization at generic levels; developments and objectives in the teaching and learning of classification; and future directions for classification research
