Using subject headings for online retrieval : theory, practice, and potential by Karen Markey ( Book )
14 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Using Subject Headings for Online Retrieval is an indispensable tool for online system designers who are grappling with developing new systems or refining existing ones. This ready reference 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 practical reference also describes the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) system and system characteristics; it shows how information is stored in machine-readable files; and it 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 continuously consult this book to generate specifications. The book also appeals to researchers in library systems, information retrieval, and user behavior because it details the results of an extensive, empirical study of the subject terms entered into online systems by end users. It also addresses the needs of advanced students in library schools and instructors in library automation, information retrieval, cataloging, indexing, and user behavior. It overviews the LCSH system and system characteristics. It describes how information is stored in machine-readable files. It offers examples of and recommendations for successful retrieval methods. Empirical evidence supports recommendations
Moving beyond the presentation layer : content and context in the Dewey decimal classification (DDC) system by Joan S Mitchell ( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member 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

FAST : Faceted Application of Subject Terminology : principles and applications by Lois Mai Chan ( )
3 editions published in 2003 in Slovenian and English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Library of Congress Subject Headings schema (LCSH) is by far the most commonly used and widely accepted subject vocabulary for general application. It is the de facto universal controlled vocabulary and has been a model for developing subject heading systems by many countries. However, LCSH's complex syntax and rules for constructing headings restrict its application by requiring highly skilled personnel and limit the effectiveness of automated authority control. Recent trends, driven to a large extent by the rapid growth of the Web, are forcing changes in bibliographic control systems to make them easier to use, understand, and apply, and subject headings are no exception. The purpose of adapting LCSH with a simplified syntax to create FAST is to retain the very rich vocabulary of LCSH while making the schema easier to understand, control, apply, and use. The schema maintains upward compatibility with LCSH, and any valid set of LC subject headings can be converted to FAST headings
Functional requirements for subject authority data (FRSAD) a conceptual model by Marcia Lei Zeng ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member 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

Using Library Classification Schemes for Internet Resources by Diane Vizine-Goetz ( )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Position paper presented at a colloquium for project participants hosted by the OCLC Internet Cataloging project in conjunction with the American Library Association Midwinter Meeting on January 19, 1996 in San Antonio, Texas
The role of classification in CORC by Thomas Butler Hickey ( )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member 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
Form subdivisions their identification and use in LCSH by Edward T O'Neill ( )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Form subdivisions have always been an important part of the Library of Congress Subject Headings. However, when the MARC format was developed, no separate subfield code to identify form subdivisions was defined. Form and topical subdivisions were both included within a general subdivision category. In 1995, the USMARC Advisory Group approved a proposal defining subfield $v for form subdivisions and in 1999 the Library of Congress began identifying form subdivisions with the new code. However, there are millions of older bibliographic records lacking the explicit form subdivision coding. Identifying form subdivisions retrospectively is not a simple task. An algorithmic method was developed to identify form subdivisions coded as general subdivisions. The algorithm was used to identify 2,563 unique form subdivisions or combinations of form subdivisions in OCLC's WorldCat. The algorithm proved to be highly accurate with an error rate estimated to be less than 0.1%. The observed usage of the form subdivisions was highly skewed with the 100 most used form subdivisions or combinations of subdivisions accounting for 90% of the assignments
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 ( )
2 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member 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 schemes for Internet resources revisited by Diane Vizine-Goetz ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member 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
