Abstract: In recent years there is growing interest in the study of paranormal phenomenon. A broad area referred to as the Science of Consciousness has emerged as a discipline. This paper is an attempt to map the domain, and examine its coverage in knowledge organization systems. An idea of the facets of the domain is also provided based on an analysis of the published literature with the suggestion that these need to be adequately provided for in systems of knowledge organization.

Abstract: The categorial approach was formulated by Ranganathan in the 1930s in his Colon Classification and its conceptual and theoretical basis was laid down in his Prolegomena. This view influenced significantly the search for a new approach to knowledge organization that would overcome the rigidity and limitations of enumerative models. The categorical approach or the facet-analytical approach has since become the single most predominant approach in knowledge organization leading to the development of a number of special classification schemes for micro-subjects, new general classification schemes such as BSO (and revision of existing schemes, e.g. BC2), indexing systems such as PRECIS and POPSI, revision and / or development of controlled vocabularies to conform to the faceted approach, emergence of new tools such as the Thesaurofacet and Classaurus, and in recent years, facet analysis has even been used in website design. This paper explores some schemas and raises a few questions as to the relevance of these in the digital environment.

Abstract: Facet analysis is considered the most distinct approach to knowledge organization within LIS. This paper views 'Facet Analysis' as a domain and visualizes its parameters using domain analytic techniques. Over 150 papers on 'Facet Analysis' published since 2008 were identified via a search in Web of Science. The subject terms and other associated metadata of each of the records were taken to represent the different facets of the domain. The basic research question is: what are the facets of facet analysis? The study seeks to graphically represent the contours of the domain. The analysis of the data suggests that while the traditional aspects continue to dominate research in the area, aspects such as Artificial Intelligence, Information Architecture, etc are emerging as new areas of application. The distribution of authors suggests that interest in the area is now by no means confined to India, Europe and North America. There is evidence to suggest that Facet Analysis as a tool is growing in importance.

8Raghavan, K.S.: Education for information management as a transformation force.
In: Wissen - Wissenschaft - Organisation: Proceedings der 12. Tagung der Deutschen Sektion der Internationalen Gesellschaft für Wissensorganisation Bonn, 19. bis 21. Oktober 2009. Hrsg.: H.P. Ohly. Würzburg : Ergon Verlag, 2013. S.182-190.
(Fortschritte in der Wissensorganisation; Bd.12)
Abstract: Effective information management could be a key factor in the knowledge society in increasing productivity and contributing to growth in all sectors. It is not surprising that large corporate houses and even governments at various levels are attaching importance to effective information management. The emphasis on e-governance, the setting up of knowledge management units in large corporations, the setting up of telecentres in villages, the major changes in management and administration of libraries, the growing importance of the Web in knowledge transfer activities are all clear indicators of the changing times. Education for information management, therefore, assumes significance and a well-designed programme could be a major force in bringing about the much needed transformation in information resource management so as to be a major support in development-related activities, Professional education system should aspire to encompass the world of work in all its forms. Work constitutes the human sphere where knowledge and skills are applied and where new knowledge takes shape in response to societal needs. Critics have remarked that India's undergraduate and graduate programmes are too theoretical; the suggestion is that they are devoid of 'practical' experiences. This is true of most professional education programmes including Librarianship and information management. In addition the 'information arena' is rapidly changing and also widening. The implications of these environmental changes for educational programmes in the area of information resources management are examined. A few suggestions indicating priorities and possible approach for schools of information resource management in India have been made.
9Neelameghan, A. ; Raghavan, K.S.: Concept of 'time', semantic relationships and cultural frames.
In: Categories, contexts and relations in knowledge organization: Proceedings of the Twelfth International ISKO Conference 6-9 August 2012, Mysore, India. Eds.: Neelameghan, A. u. K.S. Raghavan. Würzburg : Ergon Verlag, 2012. S.212-219.
(Advances in knowledge organization; vol.13)
Abstract: This paper deals with the impact of culture, especially ancient traditions and indigenous cultures, on conceptualization and semantic relationships. Gives examples of representation of the common "universal. concept of "Time,. viewed through select cultural perspectives. Provisions for representing "Time. in knowledge organization tools (KOTs) are examined. Some of the ideas and examples presented arose from our work for developing multi-lingual, multi-culture databases, the related KOTs, user-interfaces, and retrieval processes.

(Advances in knowledge organization; vol.11)
Inhalt: Based on experiences with the design and development of a Tamil-English bilingual thesaurus this paper discusses with examples: (1) some issues related to vocabulary management in multilingual thesauri in culture-specific domains; (2) special aspects of the Tamil language in this regard; (3) alternative ways of linking certain descriptors to lengthy lists of NTs and RTs; (4) advantages of integrated use of two or more knowledge organization tools; and (5) use of the bilingual thesaurus for certain types of research in Tamil. Issues related to equivalence, non-hierarchic associative relationships, homographs, NTs are discussed. The paper suggests that integrated use of two or more knowledge organization tools adds value.

11Souza, R.R. ; Raghavan, K.S.: ¬A methodology for noun phrase-based automatic indexing.
In: Knowledge organization. 33(2006) no.1, S.35-44.
Abstract: The scholarly community is increasingly employing the Web both for publication of scholarly output and for locating and accessing relevant scholarly literature. Organization of this vast body of digital information assumes significance in this context. The sheer volume of digital information to be handled makes traditional indexing and knowledge representation strategies ineffective and impractical. It is, therefore, worth exploring new approaches. An approach being discussed considers the intrinsic semantics of texts of documents. Based on the hypothesis that noun phrases in a text are semantically rich in terms of their ability to represent the subject content of the document, this approach seeks to identify and extract noun phrases instead of single keywords, and use them as descriptors. This paper presents a methodology that has been developed for extracting noun phrases from Portuguese texts. The results of an experiment carried out to test the adequacy of the methodology are also presented.

12Raghavan, K.S.: Education for knowledge organization : the Indian scene.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 41(2005) no.2, S.105-119.
Abstract: This paper briefly traces the history of library education in India and examines the status of bibliographic organization and control in the country as a major factor influencing the nature and content of courses in knowledge organization. The two basic documents from the University Grants Commission - the first one issued in 1965 and the recent one in 2001 - that have influenced university level course contents have been examined. Finally, the nature of changes that are being brought about in recent years in some universities has been highlighted.

13Oliveira Lima, G.A.B. de ; Raghavan, K.S.: Information retrieval and cognitive research.
In: Knowledge organization. 31(2004) no.2, S.98-105.
Abstract: Information Science, which attained the status of a discipline in the 1980s, has been enriched by Inputs from a number of disciplines ranging from computer technology to psychology. A predominant characteristic of research in Information Retrieval in recent years has been the adoption of a 'user-centered' approach to the design of information systems. This shift in the emphasis began primarily after Belkin enunciated his ASK (Anomalous State of Knowledge) hypothesis. Research in the Cognitive Sciences has the potential to contribute substantially to enhancing all Information Retrieval processes. This paper emphasizes the importance of adopting a broad-based approach to cognitive research in IR and suggests that there is a need for exploring the relevance of analytico-synthetic approach and related research in the design of IR systems.

In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 33(2002) nos.3/4, S.193-209.
Abstract: Gives operational definitions of work, associated work, composite work and other selected terms. Mentions the challenges posed by the abundant availability of digital resources in different media, forms and formats to catalogers in particular and information professionals in general. Discusses with examples the applicability and adequacy of the rules and prescriptions of ISBD(ER) and AACR2, 1998 rev. for cataloging multimedia resources on CD, in view of the fact that the record medium, the physical form and format affect the effectiveness of accessing, retrieval and use of a work.

18Raghavan, K.S. ; Iyer, H.: Structuring of compound and complex subjects in social sciences : a user's survey.
In: International classification. 5(1978) no.1, S.8-14.
Abstract: Based on a paper presentend to the Documentation Research and Training Centre 'Seminar on classification and indexing in social sciences', Bangalore. An analysis of a detailed survey on facet-analysed subject strings in the field of social sciences. Subject strings of 4 typers were administered as a stratified sample of responses to identify the gaps in semantic connotation of terms. This survey has helped to idetify the possible aberrations in the semantic connotations due to the presence or absence of terms. It was found that use of prepositions, conjunctions and other role indicating terms gives semantic clarity. The syntax of speciator terms may have to be varied according to the respondent groups. It was found that if the number of component terms in a subject string increases beyond a certain limit it gives rise to problems in interpretation of ideas. This indicates a break-even point for formulating subject headings

Abstract: Patient records constitute an important source of valuable information for health-care personnel. Unfortunately, however, in most health-care institutions these are not indexed and organized to support decision-making. A patient record is complex and has data on so many parameters that conventional methods are not capable of fully exploiting the information and knowledge in these. This paper reports the initial results of an ongoing experiment to build an ontology based on concepts extracted from the patient records in the domain of neurosurgery of a large hospital. Results suggest that the ontology could prove to be an acceptable way of providing a decision support system for health care personnel.
