1Miksa, S.D.: ¬The relationship between classification research and information retrieval research : 1952 to 1970.
In: Journal of documentation. 73(2017) no.6, S.1343-1379.
Abstract: Purpose The purpose of this paper is to present the initial relationship between the Classification Research Group (CRG) and the Center for Documentation and Communication Research (CDCR) and how this relationship changed between 1952 and 1970. The theory of normative behavior and its concepts of worldviews, social norms, social types, and information behavior are used to characterize the relationship between the small worlds of the two groups with the intent of understanding the gap between early classification research and information retrieval (IR) research. Design/methodology/approach This is a mixed method analysis of two groups as evidenced in published artifacts by and about their work. A thorough review of historical literature about the groups as well as their own published works was employed and an author co-citation analysis was used to characterize the conceptual similarities and differences of the two groups of researchers. Findings The CRG focused on fundamental principles to aid classification and retrieval of information. The CDCR were more inclined to develop practical methods of retrieval without benefit of good theoretical foundations. The CRG began it work under the contention that the general classification schemes at the time were inadequate for the developing IR mechanisms. The CDCR rejected the classification schemes of the times and focused on developing punch card mechanisms and processes that were generously funded by both government and corporate funding. Originality/value This paper provides a unique historical analysis of two groups of influential researchers in the field of library and information science.

2Miksa, S.D.: Educators: what are the cataloging issues students get excited about? : professional and intellectual appeals of cataloging and students' misconceptions of cataloging.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 45(2008) no.3, S.17-24.
Abstract: This paper discusses the professional and intellectual appeals demonstrated by cataloging students, as well as some common misconceptions. Given the current digital environment and the "Amazoogle" effect, students face many challenges when striving to complete a basic course in descriptive and subject cataloging. In the process, they face issues of varieties of information objects, how to tame tools such as AACR2 and LCSH, and how MARC encoding fits into the overall process of cataloging. They also must learn to re-conceptualize their ideas of copy cataloging and learn to appreciate the authoritative power that comes with using and applying cataloger's judgment.

3Miksa, S.D.: ¬The challenges of change : a review of cataloging and classification literature, 2003-2004.
In: Library resources and technical services. 51(2007) no.1, S.51-68.
Abstract: This paper reviews the enormous changes in cataloging and classification reflected in the literature of 2003 and 2004, and discusses major themes and issues. Traditional cataloging and classification tools have been re-vamped and new resources have emerged. Most notable themes are: the continuing influence of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Control (FRBR); the struggle to understand the ever-broadening concept of an "information entity"; steady developments in metadata-encoding standards; and the globalization of information systems, including multilinguistic challenges.

4Miksa, S.D. ; Burnett, K. ; Bonnici, L.J. ; Kim , J.: ¬The development of a facet analysis system to identify and measure the dimensions of interaction in online learning.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 58(2007) no.11, S.1569-1577.
Abstract: The development of a facet analysis system to code and analyze data in a mixed-method study is discussed. The research goal was to identify the dimensions of interaction that contribute to student satisfaction in online Web-supported courses. The study was conducted between 2000 and 2002 at the Florida State University School of Information Studies. The researchers developed a facet analysis system that meets S. R. Ranganathan's () requirements for articulation on three planes (idea, verbal, and notational). This system includes a codebook (verbal), coding procedures, and formulae (notational) for quantitative analysis of logs of chat sessions and postings to discussion boards for eight master's level courses taught online during the fall 2000 semester. Focus group interviews were subsequently held with student participants to confirm that results of the facet analysis reflected their experiences with the courses. The system was developed through a process of emergent coding. The researchers have been unable to identify any prior use of facet analysis for the analysis of research data as in this study. Identifying the facet analysis system was a major breakthrough in the research process, which, in turn, provided the researchers with a lens through which to analyze and interpret the data. In addition, identification of the faceted nature of the system opens up new possibilities for automation of the coding process.

Abstract: This paper describes the work of the MARC Content Designation Utilization (MCDU) Project, funded by a National Leadership Grant from the U.S. Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The MCDU Project is analyzing approximately 56 million MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data records from OCLC's WorldCat database to identify actual use of the content designation available in the MARC bibliographic record. We consider bibliographic records as artifacts resulting from the overall cataloging enterprise, of which the encoding of the bibliographic data into MARC is only one part. Concepts from the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) can be used to examine and critically assess the availability of bibliographic data in these records, data meant to assist end users in finding, identifying, selecting, and obtaining relevant information resources. Overall, the MCDU Project will provide empirical data reflecting the actual use of MARC content designation structures in this set of records. Specifically, the data can be used to demonstrate how catalogers' coding of bibliographic data may or may not assist end users in these four tasks. The project is using the mapping by Delsey of MARC data elements to FRBR user tasks in this analysis. These data are crucial for making decisions about the future of MARC and may inform current work on bibliographic rules reflected in the development of the next version of cataloging rules (i.e., Resource Description and Access) by the Joint Steering Committee for the Revision of the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules.
