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 329 WorldCat member 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."--BOOK JACKET

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: fasetna uporaba predmetnega izrazja( )

1 edition published in 2003 in Slovenian and held by 3 WorldCat member 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 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

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
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
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 0 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
