Using subject headings for online retrieval : theory, practice, and potential by Karen Markey( Book )
19 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 330 libraries worldwide
"Using Subject Headings for Online Retrieval is an indispensable tool for online system designers who are developing new systems or refining existing ones. The book describes subject analysis and subject searching in online catalogs, including the limitations of retrieval, and demonstrates how such limitations can be overcome through system design and programming. The book describes the Library of Congress Subject Headings system and system characteristics, shows how information is stored in machine-readable files, and offers examples of and recommendations for successful retrieval methods. Tables are included to support these recommendations, and diagrams, graphs, and bar charts are used to provide results of data analysis." "Practitioners in institutions using or considering the installation of an online catalog will refer to this book often to generate specifications. Researchers in library systems, information retrieval, and user behavior will appreciate the book's detailing of the results of an extensive, empirical study of the subject terms entered into online systems by end users. Using Subject Headings for Online Retrieval also addresses the needs of advanced students in library schools and instructors in library automation, information retrieval, cataloging, indexing, and user behavior."--Jacket

Moving beyond the presentation layer : content and context in the Dewey decimal classification (DDC) system by Joan S Mitchell( Book )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
Can the Dewey Decimal System meet the needs of the rapidly changing information environment?Moving Beyond the Presentation Layer explores the Dewey Decimal System from a variety of perspectives, each of which peels away a bit of the?presentation layer??the familiar linear notational sequence-to reveal the content and context offered by the DDS. Library professionals from around the word examine how the content and context offered by the DDS can evolve to meet the needs of the changing information environment, with a special focus on the impact of the Internet on current and future

The role of classification in CORC by Thomas Butler Hickey( file )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The use of the DDC in metadata offers unique opportunities for organizing and searching Web resources. In this paper, we describe CORC tools for applying and using the DDC as a metadata element. Both the CORC system and the DDC are benefiting from the inclusion of Dewey in the CORC project. CORC benefits from having integrated access to a rich classification system that can be used to organize its metadata; the DDC benefits from its inclusion in an easily adaptable Web-based system that facilitates the exploration of what a classification system can do in this new environment
FAST: fasetna uporaba predmetnega izrazja ( file )
1 edition published in 2003 in Slovenian and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Library of Congress Subject Headings Scheme (LCSH) je najpogosteje uporabljan in najbolje sprejet slovar predmetnih oznak za splošno uporabo. Dejansko je to splošen kontrolirani slovar, ki ga mnoge države uporabljajo za model pri razvijanju sistemov predmetnih oznak. Vendar pa kompleksna skladnja in pravila za oblikovanje oznak zaradi potrebe po visoko kvalificiranem osebju omejujejo njegovo uporabo in zmanjšujejo učinkovitost avtomatizirane normativne kontrole. Najnovejše težnje, ki so posledica hitrega razvoja spleta, zahtevajo spremembe v sistemih bibliografske kontrole, ki naj bi bili enostavnejši za uporabo in razumevanje - predmetne oznake pri tem niso izjema. Za oblikovanje FAST-a je namen prilagoditve LCSH-ja s poenostavitvijo skladnje ta, da se obdrži bogat besedni zaklad LCSH-ja, ob tem pa zagotovi enostavnejše razumevanje, kontrola in uporaba. Novi sistem ostane skladen z LCSH-jem v smeri navzgor, kar pomeni, da je mogoče vsak sklop predmetnih oznak LCSH pretvoriti v predmetne oznake FAST

Functional requirements for subject authority data (FRSAD) : a conceptual model by IFLA Working Group on the Functional Requirements for Subject Authority Records (FRSAR)( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The purpose of authority control is to ensure consistency in representing a value - a name of a person, a place name, or a term or code representing a subject - in the elements used as access points in information retrieval. The primary purpose of this study is to produce a framework that will provide a clearly stated and commonly shared understanding of what the subject authority data/record/file aims to provide information about, and the expectation of what such data should achieve in terms of answering user needs.

Popular LCSH with Dewey numbers : subject headings for everyone by Diane Vizine-Goetz( file )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
With our work on the second edition of Subject Headings for Children (SHC) nearing completion, the Knowledge Organization research team is exploring various technologies to generate a companion volume to SHC. Subject Headings for Children is a simple-to-use list of Library of Congress juvenile subject headings supplemented with suggested Dewey numbers. Published by OCLC Forest Press in 1994, SHC is intended to assist catalogers and reference users, including parents and children, in identifying subject headings assigned to children's works and the Dewey numbers commonly associated with them

Dewey on the road by Diane Vizine-Goetz( file )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Dewey for Windows consists of a CD-ROM database and associated search and display software. During 1995 OCLC and the Library of Congress staff presented demonstrations of Dewey for Windows for Technical Services Workstation Institutes given by ALCTS, a division of the American Library Association. Presentations included the recent developments in DDC-oriented classification research at OCLC, creating the Dewey for Windows database for DDC 21, user interface design principles, and real-world classification scenarios based on extensive use of Dewey for Windows in daily routines. Dewey for Windows was presented in the Forest Press booth at ALA Annual Summer and ALA Mid-winter conferences

Cataloging productivity tools by Diane Vizine-Goetz( file )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This paper describes an Office of Research project for producing a database of subject headings and appropriate Dewey classification numbers used in Library-of-Congress-supplied bibliographic records for juvenile materials. Constructing the database required the use of sophisticated string matching algorithms, both to eliminate duplicates and to find partial matches of interest. Output of this processing was refined by manual review. The database is used by OCLC Forest Press to produce both print and electronic publications that aid catalogers in assigning children's subject headings
Cataloging productivity tools a Web-tool for describing Internet resources by Diane Vizine-Goetz( file )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Over the past five years, librarians, humanities computing researchers, and computer scientists have been working to establish standards for encoding and accessing local and networked electronic information resources. These standards are just now being put into practice by their corresponding user communities, and their application provides opportunities for exploring synergies among the various approaches used. The OCLC Office of Research Cataloging Internet Resources project is investigating the relationship among three of these the Machine- Readable Cataloging (MARC) format used by librarians, the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Header developed by humanities computing researchers, and the emerging Uniform Resource Citation (URC) standard for accessing materials on the World Wide Web. One result of our analysis is a prototype Web-based tool called Spectrum that enables individuals without specialized knowledge of library cataloging or markup to create records describing the bibliographic and location elements of networked electronic resources of various types
Feasibility of a computer-generated subject validation file based on frequency of occurrence of assigned LC subject headings : phase II, nature and patterns of invalid headings by Lois Mai Chan( file )
2 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The first phase of this project studied the feasibility of automatically generating a subject validation file with complete strings but few errors and obsolete elements from LC-assigned subject headings appearing in bibliographic records. It analyzed the distribution and density of subject headings by frequency of use and calculated the rate of errors and obsolete elements in subject headings that have been used at least twice in the LCMARC database. The second phase analyzes the nature and patterns of incorrect and obsolete subject headings. Although errors in subject headings assigned by LC occur at a relatively low rate, an awareness of the nature of errors and the rate of obsolete headings will help to avoid or minimize such errors in the future. Understanding the recurring patterns of errors can also help to improve mechanisms for identifying and correcting errors and for updating obsolete headings automatically
Classification research at OCLC by Diane Vizine-Goetz( file )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In summer 1996, OCLC Forest Press published the 21st edition of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC 21). For the first time, a new edition of the classification was published in two formats: the traditional four-volume print format and an electronic version on CD-ROM (Dewey for Windows). The publication of Dewey for Windows completed several years of collaborative effort by OCLC and Forest Press staff. The goal was to produce an electronic version of the DDC that employs the electronic form to maximum advantage but remains sensitive to traditional features that carry over to the new media. In addition to the publication of Dewey for Windows, the collaboration between OCLC researchers and Dewey classificationists has resulted in an active classification research program. This article provides an update on the Dewey research program described by Vizine-Goetz and Mitchell [1996] and introduces new research springing from that work
Classification schemes for Internet resources revisited by Diane Vizine-Goetz( file )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Library classification schemes have become increasingly available in electronic form and undergone many enhancements that make them attractive for web knowledge organization. In fact, library professionals have been quite successful in applying library classification to Internet-based information services in a number of projects, both small and large. Yet, many opportunities remain for improving our general knowledge organization tools and using them in new ways. In this article, the DDC hierarchy structure is compared to the subject trees of Internet directory services in terms categories, hierarchies, and distributions of postings. The schemes are also compared with respect to several general characteristics that support browsing. The findings suggest that the prospects are very good for developing effective DDC-based browsing structures to large collections
